The Undercarriage
I’ve already made progress on the Stretchers, Shelf and glue up for the legs.

The legs however are little complicated… I made a list…
- 7 Stretchers = 14 mortises (2 pairs interlocking) – done
- Drawer bore pins = many holes – leg holes done, tenon holes to go.
- 1 Parallel Guide = 1 through mortise – drilled, yet to clean up
- Screw Mechanism = 1×35mm hole and – done, need to sand
- Screw Mechanism = mortise for screw nut – not yet
- Screw Mechanism = mortise for acetyl brushing – not yet
- 2 wheel mounts = 6 holes, tapped – not yet
- Holdfast/bench dog holes/storage = several 3/4” holes – not
