Got the end cap done. Is it just me? I have to reassure myself that it will be okay when joints don’t look seamless or water tight. Slight gap at the top where the cap meets the top. On the side with the tennon, I eased the grain by beveling it down, so while it looks like a gap, it isn’t nearly as big as it appears.
Me too. I usually shut off the breaker to the table saw, router table, and dust collector before I let the girls out there. Obviously I forgot this time.
On another note, what would be best for reinforcing the steps in the dados? Should I add a couple of screws on the steps, a couple of dowels, or does it matter? This is intended for my daughter who is around 35 lb, but my wife will inevitably stand on it too.
