« Part 10: Starting the arms Part 11 of Jensen-style Z-Chair series Part 12: Seat frame - slight adjustment »

I used a piece of scrap to confirm the bevel angles where the arm will join the rest of the side structure. There’s the computer model and then there’s reality, and sometimes they don’t align. Fortunately, this time they did.

For the long bevel in front, I rough-cut it on the bandsaw and use the disc sander to sneak up on the line.

I won’t cut the bevels on the arm pieces yet. I’ll do that after I get the top shaped. I did want to get the 1/2” dowel hole drilled in the end of the arm pieces while they were still square. I did not have a 1/2” spiral bit, but a regular straight plunge bit worked in a pinch. I carried the centerline marks down the 3 flat sides so that I can transfer the marks to the back stile once the bevel is cut.

The mating surface on the back stile can’t be positioned close enough for the router to reach in order to drill the other dowel hole, so this will be done on a drill press later.

The coolest router jog to date.
