been a few days? A couple of glue ups did indded happen….
Second one was also done. Set them aside for now…
And started to work on the seat parts…
Sawn a curve where the slats for the seat will attach. Each one of these is just a hair longer than the other. Front one being the widest, and the back one the narrowest. There is a middle one. set up with 1” long tenons on the ends. This will do for now.
Had resaw work to do, twice..
Used one of the curved seat supports to draw to curved lines, then bandsaw to cut off the waste. Planes, spokeshaves, and sanders to smooth the curves out..
Once the first one was done, I could lay out the second one, resaw it, and smooth it out as well
On the outside curve, I could just handplane it smooth, the inside curve took that spokeshave to get things smoothed out..
Laid out some tenons on each end of a few parts. Not taking all that much off, but it involved a lot of rip cuts..
The wider cuts were over 3-1/2” long, was a bit too much for the old backsaw…remembered I had just sharpened up a Disston Rip saw…might as well test it out. Cots took half as long as that 9 ppi backsaw.
The other cuts were either with the backsaw, or that coping saw. Chisel to clean things up. I tenoned both of the curved pieces, and the back seat support piece.
All were a challenge to keep clamped in the vise..Finally got those parts done..
Sooooo, NOW I can start cutting slats for the back, and for the seat. LOTS of resaw work…thenI can tenon the back’s slats, and mortise the top and bottom back rails. Then, maybe I can lay out WHERE the mortises for the back’s parts will go into the sides.
Proceeding at the Speed of …Smell….stay tuned, might be halfway done before too much longer…
