« Part 6: Start on the back Part 7 of Stickley No. 369 Slant-arm Morris Chair series Part 8: finished... »

The rounded slats are cleaned up with plane and spokeshave. Next they are tenoned. I used the straight piece from previous entry to mark tenons. Tenons aren’t square to the world. Then it is a ton of fitting work again. Mortises made same way as before.

Another dry fit. Marking tenons so I can chamfer them to intersection point. Shortened arm tenons to protrude about 5/16” Everything is chamfered. Did most of that with a block plane.

Next we sweat the glue up. Sides first. Arms to sides. Sides to front/back rails. Hammered pins into the joints. So many of my pins broke on the way in. Not sure why. They went enough to clamp real well. Anyway I used good glue and clamp pressure.
