I tackled a more challenging chair – a continuous back arm windsor chair. This had 6 through tenons in the arms and 2 through tenons in the seat. All of these were wedged and needed to be disassembled, new wedges made, and glued up all at once. I share my technique for keeping my chisels razor sharp too. I hope you enjoy this one!

Scott,

I always learn something from your videos, and I do appreciate your nice background music, too.

Have you ever considered making yourself a bench hook or shooting board? It could make work on those small pieces a little easier and maybe a trifle safer as well.

Thanks for the recommendation. I have a bench hook, but didn’t think to use it for this as I was also prepping the step of making the wedges. I haven’t used a shooting board… what would be the advantage of using one of those? Thanks. Scott

Scott,

The shooting board is good for perfecting a 90-degree angle with a hand plane. You might not have a lot of use for it with the type of work you do. They can also be made with a 45-degree angle which is good for frame-making.

Thanks! That’s good to know
