Paul starts this project with the preparation of stock and by discussing how to make best use of the material to minimise waste. With the stock for the front frame ripped and cut to size, the front frame is laid out, making sure to mark the mortises on the correct faces. The mortise jig is used to align the chisel for chopping the mortises parallel. Then the leg top tenons are laid out and cut, which will be mortised into the arms.
