Hello LJ’s,

I cut the tenons for the spindles on my table saw today with the tenoning jig I made and posted on this site. I really like that tenoning jig. Here is a video I took a while back.

I dry fit the chair back and stood it up in the frame of the chair to get a look.

I then started work on the arm rests. I cut the top rails on the chair sides on the band saw to match the curve of the armrests then template routed them on the router table. Here is a photo of the rail with double stick carpet tape on it and the template next to it.

For those who have never template routed here is a picture of how much material stands proud of the template. I rough cut on the band saw trying to stay withing an 1/8” of the pencil line.

The rest gets cut off very cleanly on the router table. Sure beats sanding! Here’s a vid.
