The Bench – Assembling the Legs
We had another session filming the making of the legs, specifically chopping the mortices. After that I finished the first leg frame, complete with through tenons in the Craftsman style for the lower cross brace.
Followed by cutting the tenons and the glue-up of the first leg frame:
After glue-up, planing the top tenons flush:
The lower tenons are through-tenons finished rounded-over in the Craftsman style:
Now nothing more will happen with the bench until February when Daniel the film-maker returns from the US to finish a sequence on the assembly of the second leg section. Hopefully I will have my hands on the vice by then.
