Thickness sanded the walnut back in the drum sander.


Used a plane to joint the sides, then applied glue in preparation for the joining jig.


Aligned the back grain and clamped into the joining jig.


Also jointed the top, after planing down in the planer.  Used a shooting plane to create seamless joint.


Later this afternoon, I’ll remove the back from the joining jig and join the top.  Tomorrow I should be able to install the rosette.
