I’m trying to build a Morris chair, with a beveled back mortise cap similar to one shown here (stealing pintodeluxe’s pic):
I’m using the Woodsmith Plans to build it but it just isn’t coming out correctly.
Can anyone tell me if these instructions will work? I don’t see how since after the first two cuts you end up with a peak that runs down the center of the part that never seems to get cut off (shown in the “Third Cut” picture).....
The “lines” that run to the peak are supposed to come from the corners, not from the center of the part!
I hope this makes more sense than luck I am having trying to cut this thing! I’ve tried cutting it about 5 different ways and it’s not coming out!
Thanks for any assistance.
