Our neighbor up at our cabin found some short pieces of cedar poles that the loggers left at their logging site, so he kindly donated them to me.
He knew that I had purchased a “Logman Tenon Maker” from “Rockler Hardware” last year. It works quite well. It requires the use of a large router, & it has templates to cut 5/8”, 1”, 1 1/2”, 2”, & 2 3/4” tenon’s. Once the router is adjusted properly, you don’t have to reset your router when changing templates. It’s almost like playing with “Tinker Toys”, like when I was a kid.
I made him 2 benches as a gift of thanks for giving me the logs, & I also made a bench & a rocking chair for my “Sweetheart”.
The name “Bairbre” is the Irish name for Barbara.
