« Part 18: A "normal" Saturday in the shop? Part 19 of That OddLots Ad series Part 20: More mortises, and a few panels »

Was still sore from the day before. Tenons were done, at least on the rails for this door…hope the other door is easier….
Needed to notch the top and board rails’s tenons a bit. Called a Haunched Tenon.

Since the stiles have that groove, the little “tab” will fill that, and still leave a bit of a tenon…
Next, get set up to chop a few mortises….need a jig..

Just three pieces of scrap pine….Spaced for a slip fit..

Mallet to bang the part into place, chisel to chop. Later, I used a couple other chisels, mainly to clean things out

First one was a tad loose….bad bandsaw cut the other day,,,tenon was off-set a hair…adjusted that,,

Needed to do the two ends first, find the center point between them, and add the middle wide rail..

Then find the center point between the middle rail, and the end rails…and chop the mortises…

5 mortises done. Set the other stile in place, check for square, and then I can do more layouts..

Back said I had done enough for one day….chopping was done standing up….not the best way, for me.

Tuesday, I can get the other 5 mortises done, and start on raising the panels, maybe?
Stay tuned..
