table stop stretchers

In the photo you can see the table top stretcher with mortises complete and routed grooves to house the solid wood top sections. This was done using a plunge router and fence. The piece of plywood shown was clamped in place to serve as a stop controlling the length of the routed grooves.

This happens to be the 75th anniversary of the CCC, Civilian Conservation Corp, and my wife Jean (It's her birthday) and I will spend the weekend at Devil's Den, an original CCC camp near Fayetteville, Arkansas in an original CCC cabin. Some of the original camp workers may be visiting this weekend, too, even though many are now nearing 90. While I won't be posting to the blog for a couple days, I will have photos to share on Sunday or Monday.

    Happy birthday to Jean, who is for sure not 75. And have fun at the CCC camp.
