« Part 2: Joinery decisions and cutting the framing members Part 3 of Bench/stand for metal working lathe series Part 4: She's got legs... »

Breaking down panels with my cordless saw and a T square… I cut them oversized so I can get a precision cut on the TS with the new sled.

I decided to dado the stretchers to mount the bottom shelf instead of using ledgers or just letting the plywood rest on top of the strethers.

Plywood fits nice and snug…

All done with the dado blade now, so I decided to clean up the Fusion blade before putting it back on.

missed a couple pics…

put a matching dado in the post for the bottom panel…. lines up nicely with the stretcher dado

But unfortunately, it took a couple tries and I made Swiss cheese out of one of my post bottoms…. there’s only supposed to be two dados here…. not four :^o

I have enough 4×4 left to cut a new post, but I may opt to mend this one by splicing in some matching blocks

Bummer on the oppses….
But progress is progress, even if one needs to take one step back.
