once a year we put our students into a compatitoin and we give them test pieces to get them ready for the main event…
in the past its been a simple frame with a half lap here and a mortice there…but me being me i like to push the ability and see what they are capable of..
1st picture…main corner is the mortice and tenon as seen in 2nd..3rd picture..
the two up rights are just a simple but joints screwed together but at the top you can see on one side its a strait forward cut out section…on the other side its the same basis but just lapped..
the last sections are as follows….the timber is double rebated and is dovetailed together with a mitired section…the last past is the fixing pin which locks them together…again mitred….this section sit on top of the two uprights with the final third piece resting back onto the mortice and tenon…
not many have tried …. including the other teachers
