« Part 12: Final Fitting and Draw Boring Part 13 of Barnsley Reproduction Build series Part 14: Gluing up the Frame »

I am almost done with the frame. Below is a shot of what the frame will look like.

I recruited my grandson Phin to run the mortiser. There are lots of them in the sides for button holes and one for each of the legs to fit into.

The ends of the frame are cut with a nice gentle S curve. Two lines are drawn on the pieces because the S curves also need to be beveled.

Nothing leaves a better finish than the drawknife and it is very enjoyable.

No sandpaper here, but I did have to touch up the ends with a little scraping.

A little more drawknife work makes for easy work on the bevels.

The bevels are what really set this table apart in my estimation.

All that is left is to make some pegs and drive it all together.
