Onward. The huge octagonal bird feeder is finally taking a form. Things were halted while I had to learn how to make dado and rabbit cuts. I have the floor now and what will be the bottom of the pointed roof. I am going to try and make the sides join together using box joints. Now I just have to learn how to make box joints. Not the easiest thing to do for a first timer with the angled sides of the octagon.
Regardless of progress, I’ve learned a ton of stuff in less than a week.
