Armrest stiffeners

Today I did a bit of work down in the basement shop on one of the armrests. The aluminum angle needed one of the flanges trimmed down, so after drawing a cut line, I setup a wood block to support the flange and ran 'er through the bandsaw.

It would have taken forever to file this away and the sander would've generated too much heat, so the band saw was definitely the way to go.

After a bit of filing, the angle fit quite nicely. Perhaps tomorrow I'll trim and file the other stiffener.
