Well, I cut my first mortise and tennons ever. Apparently I didn’t center the mortises too well… And I’m not terribly good with a router, but overall I’m pleased. A little more clean up and things will be good.
I’ve got to figure out my plan for the slats in the bottom half next. I’ll nee to nail that inside dimension to get it right. I’m debating routing the mortises then making the slats a perfect fit – no tennon. I’d just round over the slats on the router table to match the mortises radius. We’ll see.
-- I do this for fun.
