With the shoulders marked, Paul cuts the tenons on the stretcher. He split cuts then uses the router and chisel to fit it to the mortice. He then puts an arch in the stretcher, showing a few methods as he does so, before rounding over the tenon.
Love the meticulous approach that helps me recognize to go slow and accurate. Thanks
I agree with Brian. If it took Paul that long to make it I can figure it will take me twice as long. No hurry, just take my time and I will have a beautiful tenon as well. Thanks Paul for what you do. G
Paul please,never think you have to apologise for showing how meticulous you have to be to produce fine furniture, this is why we follow what you do and not just set a jig up and a power tool we enjoy real woodworking.
A truly excellent episode Paul. One of your best showing the meticulous detail you have to go to on occasions to get things absolutely right. Your philosophy shines through when you do this, and there is really no need to demonstrate your commitment to hand woodworking in any other way.
I totally agree David, I have tried to say more but your words say it all.
Thank you Paul
Wow that was pretty amazing to watch. I like the careful approach to get a snug fit.
