After a few more practice peices I was able to set up some stops on my drill press fence and was good to go.
It took me all day, but I was able to make all the mortises, and the tennons though the tennons where really easy. To be honest I don’t know if I’ll use this method for mortise and tennon joints in the future, I may look at building a router jig or something next time and make round tennons instead of square. It certianly was a learning experience though.
I test fit all the peices together, It doesn’t come together as square as I would have expected it too just magically be. I just need to plan out which steps to do the glue up so everything comes out square.
On a side note, I think I should devise some sort of dust collection setup for my drill press.
Overall I’m very happy with the frame, I’ll have to start glueing it together and then work on the panels that will go over the frame.
