« Part 10: Another under-productive day Part 11 of Orchard Street Sofa series Part 12: More mortises and tenons »

Unfortunately, I can’t remember what I did yesterday, much less 3 days ago.

Okay, where was I? I made the spacers for where the back rest abuts the back legs. I milled some stock to 1.5” wide by 9/16” thick, then drilled the 5/8” holes.

And cut them to 1.5” square

Then rounded them with the combo sander

They aren’t perfectly round, but they won’t be seen and I suspect that over time humidity would change their shapes anyhow.

With the spacers out of the way, I continued with the back rest. I now know exactly how long it needs to be, so I cut the rails to length, sanded the slat side edges and fit them with the stiles.

Time for a minor victory celebration!!
