« Part 8: Gluing of laminated armrest Part 9 of Morris style glider series Part 10: Through tenons on armrests »

I have not posted in awhile. Turns out completing a fine furniture build of this magnitude and preparing for a first born child to arrive is a very large undertaking.

I have continued to cut all the pieces to the final size and planed and sanded them down to thickness. I also continue to work on the joinery.

I have dry fitted both side assemblies, the seat assembly and back assembly to make sure everything is lining up correctly. I have purchased a dado blade for my table saw to make the creation of the dadoes and tenons proceed much more quickly and accurately.

With the side assemblies dry fitted, I can also use the armrest to lay out the curve of the top rail that will sit just under the armrests.

Thanks so much! Even though it is taking longer than I had hoped, I am really happy on how everything is coming together.

Have your say...
