Hello LJ’s. Both chair arms are out of the clamps. I like the white artist pencil I found for marking on darker woods.
I started laying out the mortises on the legs and wrapping my brain around the whole project BEFORE I start cutting wood and screwing something up. I like to write in marker on areas that will be hidden by joinery so I’m not searching for a faint pencil mark.
Here are the layouts for the mortises.
I have been thinking of buying a bench top mortiser but I’ve pretty much talked myself out of it. Economy. Unnecessary expense right now. Just drill it out and clean it up with a chisel. Also, I would rather buy a cabinet saw or a clearvue cyclone if I were going to make a purchase for the shop.
Til next time.
