Morning to ya! What's on YOUR agenda for this weekend?

Have 3 more Mortises to chop...and another glue-up to do...maybe clean up those 3 rails? Back 2 rails need a series of slats milled, and the mortises for the slats to fit into, Front rail will need at least 1 mortise for the middle of the seat support(s)....haven't decided on 1 or 2...yet.

Too early in the morning....will need a nap, later...
10 more chops on my little end table! hard to get motivated with this wind high temp. and wild fires flaring up all over.
