« Part 7: Frame Layout Complete Part 8 of Barnsley Reproduction Build series Part 9: Mortises are finally finished »

Someone mentioned that she liked the blog, but didn’t know all of what I was talking about. With that in mind, here is a picture of the model from below. I am working on the frame that is just under the table top and is at the top of the legs. I am currently chopping mortises and while the jig works well, there is still a significant amount of hand chopping and there are eight mortises to chop. When that is done, I will finish cutting to length, cutting tenons, diagonal ends, mortises that the buttons fit into, cutting the curved ends, beveling edges, drawboring, and gluing the frame up.
This will take a while but please stay tuned.
