Man O Man Charles, you are a “Master Mortiser” !
That chair is really starting to take shape.
That is sure going to be nice sitting in!
I like the way you are documenting your build so we can follow along.

Greetings Charles,

Stellar job on the chair and mortise and tenons…it takes a while to cut all them suckers.

Just a reminder… sure and clean up all the glue at the joints…it will show up badly when/ if you stain.

But I figured you knew that already…........ I like following along on your chair build….. coming along nicely..

Great progress, CJ! That mortise machine is really paying off!

Glad to see I’m not the only one who uses my table saw for a flat reference surface.
