Today started with the levelling up of the front short post, designating and face side and face edge and drawing centre lines. I then marked out the haunched tenon that joins this post to the wall plate.
Taking great care to check the depth of cut of my circular saw before every cut, I then chopped out the waste using the circular saw, hand saw and chisel.
Finishing by hand.
I then marked the mortice and cut most of it out using the morticer.
Finishing the mortice by hand.
It turned out to be a good fit, I only hand to remove a millimetre or two from outward face of the tenon.
With the mortice and tenon drilled and pinned, I finished the day cutting a brace blank and marking it up. I’ll start tomorrow cutting the tenons on this brace.
After this post, there is just one left to do.
