« Part 6: Tenons Part 7 of Nicholson Bench series Part 8: Drawbore! »

I finished up the mortising on the legs. They were done by boring holes with a brace and 3/4” bit

And then finished square with a 3/4” chisel.

Dry fitting the tenons and checking for square and a good fit.

And then dry assembly of the legs (2 pair).
