« Part 19: Multi-use RIP Fence JIG Part 20 of Trestle Table series Part 21: Mortise Work for fitting Tenons »

I spent this evening working to have the tenons fit into their respective mortises; in the foot and the cap parts.

I am so glad I took that Woodcraft sharpening class. Having wicked sharp blades and hand chisels mae all the difference now.

I trimmed the ends of the tenons at my bandsaw. The double tenons fit into the foot; whereas the CAP mortise is a single wide. To refine the tenons i fixed the leg part in my workbench’s vise and used my very sharp hand chisels.

I have a bit more gaps that needs to be closed. I will work on those gaps more tomorrow.
