    Have you tried a pin nailer for the trim on the FRG?
    Re your sapele ply - did you acquire that from Plyco? I知 looking to purchase some oak ply and looking for a quality source.

    Hi Lap
    S T R A N G E you should say that because I致e just been on line looking at pin nailers! The shed is quite well stocked with 18V Bosch cordless tools and chargers so I知 looking lustfully at their pin nailer? The immediate need for pin nailing has been satisfied by pre-drilling and carefully nailing but there痴 more to do tomorrow if I知 going to have the lectern finished by next week. The pre-drilling broke 3 drills and I don稚 know how many 1,5mm drills equal the cost of a pin nailer but I think I could justify it on mental health grounds only!
    I値l let you know hopefully tomorrow?

    EDIT; ooops, forgot to answer your other question, the ply was bought from Yates Timber, Lancaster Rd Ingleburn. I can do the pick up for you if needed?

    Today, not even a looming deadline could keep me in the shed for as long as I should. Although looking at these photos reminds me that I did make some progress. I had hoped to get both top and bottom beading done on the table top but I only managed the former.....

    I've forgotten how many skerricks there are in a modicum. But I might be interested in some offcuts for the fire in the coming winter.

    Mick, we致e been through this before! 17 poofteenths = a skerrick and 17 skerricks = 1 modicum so YES, there are 289 poofteenths in a modicum unless it is a Leap Year in which there are 290!
    If anyone is going to burn this cantakerous timber it will be me BUT, to share the joy, I think I will put some thought into a Winter Forum Get together where we can all enjoy the incineration?

    典he Bosch Professional trim nailer that is in all of the YouTube clips is obsolete and there is NO REPLACEMENT Bosch Customer Service, Friday 19th March 2021

    OK, I致e finally standardised on Bosch Blue cordless power tools, retired or given away all remaining non-Bosch cordless tools and chargers, and so I am NOT going to buy a cordless nailer from deWalt!
    I needed to find another solution to fixing the trim onto the lectern. Suddenly I remembered! A few years ago I bought some Japanese tapered pins and matching drills from Japan Tools Australia (JTA) because ONE DAY I WOULD NEED THEM! Well, that day has arrived.
    I gathered up the essentials ........

    2306C535-798B-467D-8B76-A1F170C72C7E.jpeg

    ......and, unlike the usual impulsive me, I decided to do a trial using surplus pieces of the trim and table top apron...

    ....... and I was very impressed! I guess a few millennia of Japanese woodworking has given them the ideal taper for glueless fitment..... but I used glue anyway. It was a very satisfying feeling to see and feel the trim being positively drawn in to the apron and staying there! I have now gone back over the trim fitted earlier with glue only and have given them the tapered pin treatment too.

    I started today痴 woodworking by going back a millennia or two and used tapered pins to fix the trim which would otherwise have hung on with glue only. By the end of the session which was marked by going down into the backyard and towing to higher ground anything that was moveable and lifting higher anything that was wasn稚, but I am very happy with progress.

    .... and this is the table apron on the lectern 蘇armonising with the apron on the altar......

    Fleety,
    My apologies in advance, but my left side of my brain, the part I think holds the cynical bit,it can be a bit nasty in there.
    Is thinking, tapered dowel pins,were they left overs from the factory that produced the eating items I used with the last box of takeaway noodles ?.
    I also could be completely wrong too.

    But after saying all that I like the idea!

    Cheers Matt

    I forgot to mention my very deft dodging of a bullet yesterday. When assembling the lower part, I 僧isdrilled 2 holes in the base 😳 which was VERY obvious. I took MALE STRATEGY NUMBER 3B to cope and STRATEGY 3B of course it's the 訴gnore it and it will go away concept! Well, as with every other time I implemented 3B, it didn稚 work.
    Late yesterday I noticed a slight wobble as it rocked on the uneven floor and so I made a mental note to provide some sort of adjustable levelling as a wobbling lectern with a microphone would sound like the drum corps of a marching band.
    it wasn稚 long before I connected the 僧isdrilling and the need to avoid the drum corps and here is the bullet dodge......

    I replaced the small hole with a BIG hole, screwed in a brass threaded insert and made up 2 threaded feet that can be adjusted from above? JOB DONE!
