« Part 13: Rear upper rail mortises Part 14 of Jensen-style Z-Chair series Part 15: Arm rough shaping and fitting »

The 1/2” dowel holes in the back stiles where the arms attach are not at right angles to the joint. I transferred a line to the side of the stile that was parallel to the dowel, and then clamped some blocks to either side of the stile to elevate one end so that the line was at right angles to the work surface.

Then drilled the dowel holes on the drill press.

Clever solution to get the angle right!

Thanks. This was an application of the Last Responsible Moment principle. Initially, I wasn’t entirely sure how I’d drill the dowel holes accurately, so I let the problem simmer until I couldn’t delay any longer. In the end, the method I used worked well for me. I’d do the same thing next time.
