« Part 2: Joining boards for the top Part 3 of Making Sofa table by handtools series Part 4: Side panels / Restoring defects »

making sequence :
2.make dadoes
3.saw curvature

I cut some boards for the rest parts.
The longest and narrow one was for the stretcher.

After dimensioning, I had to make dadoes first.
If I did make a curvature first, I could not get any reference face for dado.
After I sawed down to pencil line,

I plowed out with router plane.

Finally, I made a curvature with my own made frame saw.

With a little of shaving, I got the completed stretcher ….

See you again :)
