So i finally getting around to some joinery. Ive never chopped out a mortice by hand before, but there is a first time for everything right?
Not as hard as it may seem, didnt take long to get down with a sharp chisel. Cut about halfway through from one side, flipped leg and cut through from other side.
After measuring multiple times and marking everything, my first one didnt line up in center. Was about 3/16ths off.
Ill half to figure.out how to fix that later..
Second wasnt too bad, even though it was going through a knot i couldn’t avoid.
One leg done..
Second leg marked out, this one will have my leg vice mounted to it.
I got if chopped out, but still have to do mortice for parallel guide and hole for vice screw, i will leave it till after the leg assembly is finished and dryfit.
Marking out a tenon..
First tenon dryfit, probably gonna need to wedge it
All i have for now, wasn’t in a big hurry today, dragging arse after recovering from a dr visit and migraine yesterday and last night.
Hopefully have some complete leg assemblies tomorrow if all goes well.
Thanks for stopping by
