Put in a good days work in the shop and man did it feel good. You know those days where it just flows. Today was one of those. I had an HVAC contractor come over today to look at the furnace so I just started chopping out mortises for the spindles while he worked. I used a mortise chisel for the first time and really liked the way it performed versus a bench chisel for that task. I finished the mortise and tenons for the chair back rails and stiles. In the picture its just standing upright on the rear stretcher of the chair.
Then I milled the spindles 3/4 square, cut them to length and cut the shoulders on the table saw sled with a stop block. Next I will set up the dado blade and a sacrificial fence to cut the spindle tenons to size.
A friend of mine is going to buy my contractors saw and I’m buying a sawstop. I have not decided whether it will be the industrial or the professional. I’m leaning towards the industrial since I’m already spending the money and I want this to be the last table saw I ever buy.
