« Part 3: Panels Part 4 of Stickley 802 Hall Table series Part 5: Drawer Divider »

This is where I depart from the plan from the magazine. The side panels are mortise/tenon into the legs. The grain direction is the same as the stretcher too. I used a marking knife to mark the tenons, relieved the mark with a chisel and sawed to the line. Chisels were used to knock out most of the waste and I relied heavily on a router plane.

The waste inbetween tenons was removed using a fret saw and cleaned up with a chisel. I slipped with the chisel and marked my good face. :( I’ll hide it….

Tenons for the stretchers were done on bandsaw cutting to the line using a spacer for one cheek and removing the spacer for the other. Found my “jig” was too thin. Added 4 layers of painter tape to shim it. Worked pretty well. Mortises cut with router jig and squared with mortise chisel. The panel’s are 1/4” and x-rails 3/8”

After a bunch of chisel work and trial fitting back and forth, we have side assemblies roughed. The legs will get heavily tapered. Pretty clunky looking now.
