« Part 3: side panels worked on Part 4 of Stepback Cupboard in Pine series Part 5: Mortise work.. »

Ok, trying to get caught up here…A while back, I was able to haul the 1×2s to the shop, and make a few cuts with the “small” mitresaw..

Should be enough parts…I hope. Set up the Larger Mitresaw’s depth stops….

Found the stock holders..

Now you know why there are those slots in the mitre box’s deck. Since I was done with the other mitre box, I put it’s saw away…
That little saw will get used a bit later, I folded up the Stanley #2246 , to stow it away..

As I needed to bench space for this old jig..

But, before I could cut any tenons, I needed to know what size they had to be. Got out a scarp of 1×2..

This marks where the stiles will sit. Made the mark on both ends of the panels…laid a rail in-between the marks..

Center it up between the marks, made a couple lines to show the shoulder cut for the tenons…

Marked a couple lines, about 1/3 thickness of the board, made a test cut to just touching the line. Set the depth stop…and try again….have to make sure the saw’s spine is resting on the bearings in the guides…

Finally got it so it would not cut too deep….then cut the rest of the shoulder cuts..

8 rails, two cuts on each of of each rail…..took about 5-6 strokes of the saw….spent almost as much time moving from each cut, as I made the cuts. Which left the cheek cuts to do. mark more lines..but the mitre saw doesn’t do cheek cuts all that well…but, then bandsaw can make a bunch of them fairly fast..

Pretty soon, I had a bench full of tenoned rails..

Tried to clean up a few edges..

Without making them too skinny…some I couldn’t do much for….
Tenons done, need a place to put them

Set up the mortise jig, found the fattest tenon, and laid out some lines…

Remember that “little saw? It had a job to do…

More about that, in the next exciting episode…stay tuned
