Paul lays out the side frames by mapping out the angles on a board. First, he ensures the board is entirely square so it can be used to scribe square lines. He then lays out the mortice and rail positions before transferring them to the rail to scribe the correct shoulder angles for the side rail tenons using the sliding bevel. The tenon shoulders and faces can then be carefully sawn to the correct angle and then each tenon fitted to their individual mortise.
