Also note how I clamp the reference block a little off of my line to allow for the thickness of the saw blade, which is otherwise known. Once you have all these two-inch pieces cut down it's time to clean up the edges, and for this, I use the piece of 220 grit sandpaper. Now, moving on to the uprights, they consist of two vertical 36 inches, dowels that support the upper 36-inch dowel, that the light is actually attached to.
I begin here by marking out the hole location for the carriage bolt that holds this section together. I first drilled a quarter inch deep hole with a 5/8 inch bit that allows the bolt to sit flush in the hole and these larger holes only go on the outside face of the lamp where the head of that bolt sits. Next, I drilled all the way through with a 3/8 inch bit which matches the diameter of the bolt.
I use the hole location on one lower vertical support to mark the hole location on the other one before drilling. Then I laid out the location of the upper light, support dowel and Mark the hole location before drilling that one with a 3/8 inch Forster bit as well. At this point, I did a quick test fit to make sure everything was lining up well and then moved on to assembling the base. I started by marking out the center on all three 18 inch base sections using a spacer block.
I marked out the spacing on the bolt holes in the lower vertical supports again, first drilling in a quarter inch with a 5/8 inch bit before drilling all the way through with a 3/8 inch bit and once I drilled through both lower verticals, I placed the center base piece in position and use the holes I already drilled as a guide. The center section of the base is flanked by two of the two-inch blocks, one for each side with holes drilled down the center to match the holes. I just drilled for the eight remaining two-inch base sections they get a hole drilled on one end like you see me doing right here, I found the center on this first block and use this as a drilling guide for the remaining eight base sections.
