no previous part Part 1 of Cedar Entertainment Unit series Part 2: Cutting the mortices in the slab »

Hi all

I have purchased some beautiful Red Cedar and am going to try my hand at some larger joinery work.

It is really lovely timber and was a very good price as the timber yard sadly is closing.

This was a bundelled mixture of boards and pieces;

The main piece for the top of the unit

The larger boards I have cut in half and put through the thicknesser to get some lovely bookmatched boards to work with;

I have sized four pieces for the legs and marked out the shape I am after. I am going for a Japanese feel with the unit and having a lot of wedged mortise and tenon joints.

One leg is well under way, it is tapered from a rectagonal base to a rounded top with the splined tenon on the top

Thats all for now. Cya
