« Part 17: Getting around to get the 4"x6" legs in order Part 18 of Joinery Bench series Part 19: Can see light at end of the tunnel! All joinery completed and dry fitted to satisfaction. »

Got around to the dreadful 4”x6” mortises, tenons, and bridal joints. Getting a little burned out doing massive joinery like this. Looking forward to doing the more civil 1/4” or 1/2” stuff!
4 leg pieces at 4”x6” with 4” tenon into 4” mortise on the 2 feet.
the 4 bridal joints at each corner for the 4”x4” front and rear facing pieces.
I have 2 more 4”x4” for the sides bridal joinery to do.
Then 2”x4” stretchers here and there (or maybe not… maybe the bridal joints alone on top will suffice…will have to test).
