After waiting awhile for the first glue on the first parts to begin to set, I applied glue to the other mortises and clamped the base together as a unit. It may seem like a vast array of clamps for just 8 joints but the assembly requires clamps and spacers at the bottom as well as on the joint to make certain that it goes together straight and true. Tomorrow I can install the dowels that will attach the section of spalted maple stump to the base.

    And it looks like you got some spring in NW Arkansas! Sure wish we had some of that here in WMY.
