And that is about it. wasted half a day with a Migraine…..kind of hard to work with half the body going numb.
About evening or so….dug out some toys…saws?
Front one is a rip, back one is crosscut. I even put a NEW blade in the old Atkins No. 50 coping saw! other tools?
Well there is a Ohio Tool Co. hand plane there, a chisel or two, a mallet. Somewhere back there is a square or two, and a Stanley No.90 shoulder plane. Still trying to get that one tuned up just right.
Set up the shop stool
It is nice to sit and work on, but, IF I have to get up and walk…it gets underfoot quickly. Tried to clamp an apron..
Didn’t leave me any room to work. tried again..
Worked a bit better out on the end, at least on the longer aprons. I would saw down about a third of the way, 1/2” in from the end. Pop the waste off with a chisel and the mallet, then clean it up with the plane.
Still trying to get the 90 to work like this. Anyway, rotate, and repeat. Finally got all four aprons’ tenons cut. Took each over to the small bandsaw, and trimmed them a bit at the top and bottom edges.
Moved them out of the way a bit, set up the beltsander in the leg vise, and sanded the curvy spots smooth
Moved the sander out of the way, and set up for tomorrow’s job..
Tested a way to clamp a leg down to the benchtop. Laid out some tools..
And laid out the first of 8 mortises. Will be a mallet and chisel affair. Have a small combo square to mark out with, need to mark which tenon goes to which mortise, makes things a bit easier when I get out the Elmers.
Well, I get that job done, I might cobble some wedges to help with the glue ups. Will need to make some corner blocks, as well. Stay tuned…
