« Part 2: Milling Part 3 of Stickley desk series Part 4: Joining #2 »

Jig used for cutting mortises and groove between mortises. Tried using plow plane but skate interferes. Front of jig registers against reference of workpiece. Router set to 1” deep plows mortises. Have stop blocks which are helpful when it is getting dark.

When cutting mortises, you can see the laminations used to ensure quarter sawn all faces. That was a lot of work. Joint/plane/resaw/joint/glue/joint/plane….

Cut tenons on bandsaw by eye to one surface and then use spacer to ensure tenon width with a tad of clean up stock. Tenons cut dead to width using router plane. Try/fettle/repeat..
