Hello folks, sorry to seem evasive but below is what I am restoring. It is a bracket to support a table top on a desk,, I kind of need a matching one as the original is in very inoperative shape,, rotted out and discarded actually, so that is what I am working on. Those grooves on the sides are where you attach brackets that fasten the desktop to.
But I may have produced a solution,,,hopefully. Bring the mountain to Mohammed so to speak,,,,
Instead of revisiting the previous failed method that I employed, I built a makeshift sliding jig that I attached to my router, which is a bit safer too because it allows me to clamp the stock down more securely,, and hopefully more accurately.
And Nick thank you,,,,I will wax the bottom of this contraption too before I give it a go.
Having a cup of coffee,,No joe??? No Go!!!
