Wow I got a lot done yesterday. My wife and I also painted are bedroom in between woodworking sesions. She did the lower part of the walls, when she was done I’d go in and paint the top.
I’m sore today! But it feels good.
So I cut the legs to length by hand. The chop saw wasnt cutting accuratly enough for me so I cut these to length with a knife, a saw and my new bench hook.
Then took the #4 to the end grain.
Choped the Head and Foot board rails to length.
Then removed mill marks from the faces with the #4. Hit the edges with the #5.5
Laied out the mortices.
Chopping out 16 mortices of this size is not my idea of fun so used my router. This is my prefered method. Just a router a straight bit and an edge guide. Knocks it out in two pased with a 1/2” bit.
I still have to square up the ends with a chisel.
So thats where I am for now. Next to cut some tenons! I’m really suprpised at how fast the progress is going.
I’m having so much fun on this project. Almost as much fun as when I build my workbench.
Thanks for following along yall!
