« Part 2: Legs and other follies Part 3 of End Table, out of Ash series Part 4: Tenons done, mortises started »

Managed to get about 1.5 hours in the shop, Saturday….Aprons needed to be S4S, a bead run, tenons laid out…
Surfaced 4 Sides…I was going to gang things up, and joint the edges in the vise..

Nice, fluffy shavings….but, this does not get the work done…

This plane like to tilt a bit, does not leave a square edge…we have ways..

Stanley No.7c, Type 9 I removed the jig parts from the benchtop…and reset a couple..

I tried the #62 on the face grain….worked better, I guess. I could also stand each part up on edge, and joint those..

I thought MAYBE the plane would work with the shorter aprons….nope….still that issue with tilting…got out the Millers Falls No. 11 Junior jack…square edges resulted…
Reset the jig a bit. Stanley 45 was still set up for bead work..

Since the short aprons were on the bench, they got a bead done….single bead, will be along the bottom edge of each apron…even the long aprons got a bead..

Once all the bead work was done, I cleaned everything off the bench. Set the table’s top panel on the bench.

Set up two legs, each about an inch in from the edge. Squared one end of a short apron, marked a line 1/2” from the end. Laid that onto the legs. 1/2” mark is for a tenon. needed to lay out for the other end’s tenon…

Where the tenon starts and stops. Crosscut…

Short aprons cut to size. Then carried a line all the way around on the ends, so I can mill the tenons later, today.

Turn the legs around, and sit them against the cauls…time for the long aprons to get trimmed

Same as the short aprons….finally have the long ones trimmed..

Still need to mill rails for a bottom shelf….want to get a dry fit of the “upper-works” done first…then I can figure out the sizes needed for the rails…

Maybe, later today, I can mill some tenons, and chop some mortises….stay tuned

That bead detail is really nice!
