We are building a small standup desk for a patron who found the new desk section of the website: http://www.garyweeks.com/desks.htm.
The frame of the desk was assembled in two days. On the first, the two sides were glued. This post features photos taken on the second day of assembly.
Assembling the Front and Back Rails to One Side Frame
Adding the Other Side Frame
Driving the Wedges and Pins
The through tenons are wedged. The blind tenons are cross-pinned.
Washing the Glue from the Surface
We keep a bucket of water with a rag and old toothbrushes to scrub away the squeezed out glue.
