Next phase of the spinet is complete. I’ve glued and nailed the tulip poplar triangular knee braces into the interior of the case. Follow the captions on the photos (don’t forget to click on them for closeup views) for the explanations of what’s happening.
Where we are headed:
The knees are angled into notches cut into the bent side liner while butting on top of the bottom braces. As you will see…
I hate nailing, so much pre-drilling, all the worry about splitting….
Now for the finished knees in place:
Okay, that completes pretty much the case frame assembly phase. I now have a choice of what to do next: soundboard, keyboard, bridge and nut, cap veneers, front panel veneer work. Decisions, geez….
Thanks to Kaare for taking the process photos while I worked. Cool job, fellow worker.
Best to everyone.
