1. I really appreciate the prototype in the background. There have been a few times in the series so far where I couldn’t quite understand the layout because I had trouble visualizing where we were on the finished piece. All I had to do was look over at ten prototype and it all became clear.

    I especially liked the video angle you took when Paul was doing the round over. It was a different angle than in past videos and it nicely showed how it went from a 45 degree angle to a radius curve.

    This is a fun piece.

  2. Paul,
    “Counting revolutions” to get the depth right….priceless. Simple, elegant and so practical. Things like that are just one of the many things that make your instruction so very valuable and special.

    Thank you for all you do to share your invaluable experience with those of us who are endeavoring to emulate your skill.


  3. Wdelliot: You don’t measure the mortise from the end of the arm. You should have a mark made earlier that shows where the arm insects with the front leg (done when you were originally calculating the angle for the tenon for the back of the arm). You use that line as the start of the mortise and then just measure 2” for the hole size.
