Well I´m not a only hand tool, nor a machine carpenter either. This project requiered machines because of the hard wood and the lack of the correct hand tools needed to do the job.
I continued with the legs making the angled tenon, it wasn’t easy to make but I was happy with the job. Used a DIY router table, added a small wood on the fence side just to create the right 12° angle that a I needed. It didn´t need to be exact 12° but it needed to be consistent, it DID 12,7° and 12,9° in the other leg so thats good for me.

After making this it was time for the travesaño (spanish word for the piece of wood that holds both legs toguether).
Here is where I had the to decide to cut the tenons with the router table or by hand with a saw. I decided to cut it with a saw, it was relaxing and came out very well. It was silent and calm work in a saturday “siesta” time.

Nice work, Diego.

They’re called “stringers” in English.
