Finally Some Pins…

I have avoided the pins enough…I am always hesitant starting them on a large carcass for some reason. I think I spend so much time trying to make the tails as perfectly as possible that I hesitate to screw up the other half of the joint :-). I used my coping saw, as I did on the tails to remove the waste-much quicker and a lot easier whomping on the chisels when you are just paring to the baseline vs. chopping out the waste. Not perfect, but here’s the first corner going together:IMG_1606[1]There’s just one little caveat…at some point since the panels were glued and planed, a split opened on one of the long sides. May have been some hidden stresses pent up or maybe just being a pig. The good thing? It’s fairly small, doesn’t go through to the other side and will be hidden by the skirt as it’s low on one corner. You can see it at the bottom corner of the tail in the photo…#&@%@%$#%#%@*!!!!!IMG_1612[1]Think I’m gonna suck it up and pretend I don’t see it since it will be covered anyway…character, right? Yeah sure why not…

Annnnd, I’m writing this on my new Samsung ATIV Smart PC tablet to boot…one of the tires on my car seems higher than the others so I may use my old laptop to level that up!
