« Part 21: Drawbore pins made, spacer blocks installed, example of bad offset measurement, base complete Part 22 of Joinery Bench series no next part

I was undecided what to modify (if at all) the front moveable chop. Knowing I will be cutting at angles, I went ahead and did my first ever attempt at a lambs tongue via freehand. First, had to cut out the waste which was easy by many saw kerf cuts and chisel, but scratched my head as to how to flatten the bevel: lots of crank neck chiseling, filing, and sanding.

Once that was done, some final sanding in places and more shellac here & there. Moved into it’s final resting place in the shop. Will now post up in project section.

-- The Carpenter Bee is derived from the Ancient Greek word wood-cutter "xylokopos/ξυλοκὀπος"
