I only had a little bit of time today, but I got done what I wanted…
First… I swept up and vacuumed
Marked out the mortises
Then I used brace and bit to clean out most of the waste and then to the chisels
Mark out the tenons
Cut the tenons… wait… how do I chop out the waste in the center?
I called down my son.. Darth Lachlan who was in the middle of a Sith birthday party. He used the force for me and cleaned out the waste..
But some times the large shoulder plane is still not large enough. They need to make an XL shoulder plane.
Overall, fit together pretty nice. If you notice the tenons don’t come all the way flush with the bottom. I am going to cut a section of the bottom so it only rests on the floor at the two ends.
Then I swept and vacuumed again to get ready for tomorrow… yup, tomorrow… I have the next 4 days off work.
