Mortise and Tenon Joints –
 
I’ve spent the last couple of days in the shop laying out mortises …
 

 
... and cutting tenons.
 

 
The visible part of the frame is of 7/4 stock. That part of the frame under the kneeling platform will be constructed using 3/4 inch stock. I will work on those mortise and tenon joints later. So, with the visible members of the frame completed …
 

 
... it is time to step into an area of woodworking that, to be honest, I have not had much practice.
 

 
Anticipating having to take this giant step was actually the impetus to build my kerfing plane/rebate saw, all those many weeks ago. Therefore, it’s time to reach deep within my arsenal …
 

 
... and pull out a few of these old guys!
 

 
For you see, the visible frame members of this Prie Dieu need a bit of sticking!
 
 
Next up … antique moulding planes. Thanks for looking … more to come!

Thank, Murch! I missed working weekend before last as I visited my dad in Maryland. Must have picked up a bug at the airport because now I’m laid up with the flu. Hopefully I’ll be back at it in a day or so.
