I decided to create the measurements for the holes by hand on paper, so these are included lateron as photo. Thanks to my friend Werner who gave me his expert advice on woodworking, cut piece after piece of wood precisely on the table saw and let me use his workshop and tools for drilling and fitting!
|construction including hole positions and dieameters|
|Table drill: hacked for performance|
|10mm dia holes for the M10 bolts, 13mm dia holes for the nuts|
|The lower piece of wood is the guide for positioning the holes|
|Proof-of-concept of the 3D-connection|
|Several hours later: success!|
Coming up next: sanding, glazing (tomorrow), installing metal parts (probably tuesday).
