Last weekend I had one of my leg posts crack so I had to make a new one. Fortunately, LJ Chisseler had a piece of pine for me. So today I milled it, did the dados and mortises, then did a trim up on the mortises and a dry fit. I still have to do the final fit up on the tenons, but this is how the frame looks without panels, a lid or a bottom.
Bones Baby Bones.

Tomorrow I will trim up the tenons to tighten the joints and start gluing up the panel stock.
Have a great day!
