« Part 2: Panel Glue-up Part 3 of African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table series Part 4: Main panel sanding and and machining tongues »

Got a couple more hours in the shop this afternoon, so I started working on the legs. I machined out the intersecting mortises in the leg tops and cut the two sided taper. Then I rebated the short aprons using the same jig I made for the legs. After a short set back of cutting too deeply and having to blank a new short apron, I got the rebates cut to fit snug in the leg mortises. Some final sanding and cutting the cross lap in the aprons and it’s onto the long aprons.

I will transition to the main panel next; sanding and machining the tongues so I have an exact dimension to cut the long aprons to. I want the center of the leg to line up with the edge of the breadboard where the mahogany and maple meet.
