« Part 7: Mostly chiseling Part 8 of Orchard Street Sofa series Part 9: Its finally starting to look like a sofa »

I wasn’t able to spend a lot of time on this today so this is a very short post. I apologize and will try to do better tomorrow. :)

I finished chiseling out the arm mortises.

Thanks for reading!

Yea that’s the crummy part, I’ve found. Once you get started and start making good progress you want to keep going. All that other stuff keeps getting in the way. I found I have to donate at least 2 days a week to the Mrs….Or else?

The through mortises on Morris chairs and the like are the most difficult and tedious part. Once you get those tenons fitted you will be feeling pretty good about your progress.

Mark, a happy wife is a happy life and it appears that you already know this.

Willie, at least I feel good that they are done. :)
