ChrisK, the legs are only 1-3/4 at the top. Hmm. Looks like I should do the stretchers. I want this to last a generation, so I’m probably best figuring out how to lay out good mortises and tenons on a tapered leg. I figured I would bore out the mortise before I taper them. Then after the legs are tapered, find the angle of the taper with a bevel guide and use that to lay out the shoulders?
