I never would have guessed that cutting 4 mortises would take all afternoon. Because the mortises are angled to match the wedges, the fitting process takes a little longer than usual. I cut the first one by hand, then decided to cut the rest at the mortiser. Cutting past the layout line on the shoulder side of the mortise will ensure the joint pulls tight.
A few taps on the wedges and the shoulders draw up tight.
The keys were cut on the bandsaw.
When the keys are installed, they form a mirror image, and remind me of dragonfly wings.
