« Part 1: Design, Lumber, Rough Cutting, Top Part 2 of Coffee Table Build series no next part

After glueing up the table top, I began making the frames for the sides. I cut four panels, and eight rails and stiles. I took the time to use my hollow chisel mortiser to mortise all the stiles and I made tenons on the rails with my tenoning jig. This went quite well and everything fit nicely. I decided to practise a haunched tenon on the rails although this part will never be seen, what better time to try something new!

Two of the panels will be set into two of the frames but the other two will not as they will be trimmed to become the drawer fronts.

Hi Jake. It’s all QSWO. Some of it is a little darker than the rest.
