« Part 8: Front seat stretcher Part 9 of Wegner-Inspired Deck Chair series Part 10: A few more mortises »

The front seat stretcher sits back a short distance from the ends of the side rails and down about 1/8” from the top edge. I started by laying out the position on one of the rails.

And then I transferred the outline to the other rail.

Back to the mortising jig.

Test fit.

After cutting the matching mortise in the other rail, I did a dry assembly of the parts so far. (The back stiles are just leaning against the doors.) I’m happy with that!
