« Part 1: Project start Part 2 of Stickley No. 369 Slant-arm Morris Chair series Part 3: Rough joinery »

I rough cut and milled trying to find best utilization of wood while preserving aesthetics. The core of the legs was 8/4 stock. I insisted that the through tenons not show a glue line.

Because we want ray fleck on all 4 sides of the legs there are 4 laminations. Laminations were cut on the bandsaw tad thick. After all glued up, the legs were rotated around on jointer/bandsaw to center the tenon stock and reach final dimension.

When gluing, I used my bench as a caul. Wax paper underneath prevented sticking to the bench. What a nightmare that would be!

Note that I have stock between legs. When I bandsaw, the mating legs have a perfect match. Also, the cut is more stable and less wood is wasted.
