    If the bench top is flat then you can shorten a leg .what you describe sounds like twisted frame . Have a look at Pauls chair making video you will get what I mean

    the file has 6 sides.. 3 large faces and 3 small faces at the corners =6
    with the file in the gullet of the saw and you are looking down you should have one of the large faces horizontal and facing the sky with 2 small faces pointing left and right if you file like this is a negative rake OR (a less aggressive rake). you should file the first inch or so of teeth like this .now rotate the file slightly to the left the large face you were looking at for the first inch is now sloping to the left . the face on the right of the file should be vertical or 90 degrees. this increases the pith dramatically and gives an aggressive rake file the rest of the saw moving towards the handle like this .

    hope this helps

    looks great David. quick question did you use a standard bevel edge chisel or a mortise chisel ,i ask because i find it hard to get good results with Pauls method of using a bevel edge and prefer the weight of a mortise chisel. just curious as your mortise holes look very clean and crisp. thanks regards David

    i also had this problem at the beginning your turned edge/burr would want to be severely turned over for it to behave like this i find a couple of strokes at about 10 deg off 90 works well try not to overwork it and just feel for that edge .i also found it very important to load the blade correctly it must sit dead tight to the surface while tightening the retaining bar

    i have to agree with scott and i have heard paul say that a good square is the most important tool you will own .i invested in a starrett combination square but having said that it is also important to tighten adjustment wheel to lock it bang on 90 or 45
