« Part 4: Dry fitting the first joint Part 5 of Treadle Lathe series Part 6: Steady progress | Frame assembly soon »

Today I began hogging out the four mortises on the 1st and 3rd uprights. Each mortise will house a through tenon attaching the two ways to the uprights (legs). The second upright attaches to the ways with a series of housings in which I discussed on the last post. Sticking with the hand-tool only approach., I drilled out each mortise with my brace and 1 inch auger bit from each side of the uprights then finished it off with a chisel. I’m really happy with the fit. Thanks for following my project.
