Paul begins this episode by first establishing the angles to the front raker and the bottom rail that unites the raker to the back post. The mortise holes have a couple of nuances to them to ensure that there is enough substance to the material where other mortises will intersect the components. The angles are critical to the symmetry and so layout becomes critical for both mortise holes and tenons. It’s the step by step that simplifies the work and ensures that the two end frames are exactly the same.
