LostArtPress on InstagramAfter the obligatory pants crapping after the first coat of black milk paint, I got everything looking good. Tomorrow I will rub out the black with some burlap and apply oil and wax.Won’t you be my neighbor? This house across the street just went up for sale for $147,500 — one of the last great deals in the city I think.When installing a top corner, it’s best to treat it first like a simple L-bracket. Remove the material so the two legs of the top corner fit in your carcase. Use the strategies outlined earlier – either handwork or an electric router. Once the legs are relieved, pare away (or hammer) the inside corners of the wood so the top corner will drop into the recesses you just cut. The top of the piece of hardware should now be in its final position so you can trace or knife the shape on the carcase. Once you trace the shape on the carcase, then it’s just a matter of removing the waste. You can do this with a chisel and a router plane, or with a template and an electric router. If you go the electric route, make sure that all of the brass top corners are the exact same shape. — from “Campaign Furniture” by Christopher Schwarz #Campaign_Furniture
