« Part 10: A few more mortises Part 11 of Wegner-Inspired Deck Chair series Part 12: A start on the arms »

As I was cutting the mortises for the seat back stretchers, I made a goof. On the stiles, I cut the upper and lower mortises the same distance from the edge. I didn’t remember to take into account that on the upper (curved) stretcher I had offset its mortise to one side to better center it in the end of the curved piece.

So the stretcher hung over the edge when the tenon was fitted.

The fix was to glue-in a tenon flush with the surface on the stile, and then re-cut the mortise in the right location.

And another dry fit. Time to work on the arms.
