    Surprised to see it’s not there yet:
    it’s not what you make, it’s how you make it.

    like another has said. I’ve never met Paul, but he is present in my head as I work. How do you thank a man you’ve never met? I dunno, I just keep woodworking I guess and make a joint that Paul would be proud of.

    I redid the two worst joints and they squared up really nicely. I dry assembled after doing just one, but it was still too wonky. After the second joint there is only about a 1/4 in. out of square across the frame and I can deal with that. Thanks for the tips and encouragement. Onward and upward! Thanks for the tips and encouragement.

    I didn’t have much time today gents – too much parenting, but I got the worst mortise squared up by the removal of about 1/8 in. I planed up a thin shim and have glued it to one side of the tenon, taking the tenon on that side just about back to the original thickness. Tomorrow I’ll fit this tenon and post a pic of what I hope to be a straight rail coming out of the post.

    Brimstone! Scott if I’d known you liked engineering as much I’d have thrown in a few equations.

    Ok thanks for the thoughts gents. The good news is I haven’t glued up yet, so I will true up the mortise holes and glue a shim to the tenon and see how that goes. This’ll be a first. I include my journal entry on this matter to see if you agree with my analysis. I hope you can read it. Happy New Year.
