« Part 5: Triangular hub angled mortises Part 6 of Tripod Floor Lamp series Part 7: Final assembly and finishing »

The spokes are essentially just long floating tenons, 1” x 3/8”. The mortises in the hub slightly overlap, so the ends of the tenons have to be tweaked a little to get maximum depth for each one. I marked the border of the excess of each tenon through the adjacent mortise holes and then used the disc sander to remove the excess.

Now the tenons all meet snuggly at the center:

After more sanding, I glued in the spokes and set the assembly aside to let the glue dry.

Next is final assembly and finishing.

Sexy! The devil is in the detail, and so are the beauty.

The converging spokes is a totally hidden detail, but I know it’s there and I feel like I got the best glue joint possible.

It just makes it more sexy, that it’s hidden. ;-)
