I've been hard at work in between work and family commitments getting on with this exciting (for me) project - really the completion of this will make working on my other projects so much more pleasant and straightforward, having the space and, importantly, the vice too.

Marking out for the tenons - a little more complicated than the 'cheeks only' approach used by Mr Sellers, but it's been extremely good practice for me at improving my sawing and chiselling skills.

Image


Chiselling the small groove into the knife wall to make sawing that bit easier.

Image


Sawing the shoulder with a 10" tenon saw.

Image


Then sawing the edge cheek with a handsaw - I also did try chiselling this waste, and preferred that approach in the end.

Image


Edge cheeks all tidy and ready for working on the face cheeks.

Image


I tried sawing the face cheek waste away and again, actually prefer chiselling - this photo was my first attempt, since then I've improved significantly! I started well above the line to be sure the split wasn't going to go pear shaped.

Image


Tidying up the face cheeks with a router plane. On the outer part I used a 4 1/2 smoothing plane, worked great.

Image


Tenon completed, ready for rounding over the ends tomorrow.

Some great looking work again!

Interesting to see you preferred splitting instead of sawing the cheeks.

The big question of course is, did it fit?

Not straight off the saw or chisel, but happy to say that fairly minimal paring was needed to get a nice fit - so the marking out mut have been fairly close!

Made the four roundovers on the four lower rail tenons today - the upper rail tenons just get cut flush to the leg so as to accommodate the apron.

Planing the long edge rounded using the trusty 4 1/2:

Image


Chiselling the short edge roundover using four chops, followed by a rasp then a file to get the curve just right:

Image


After sanding to remove any file marks and the marking lines:

when you do the apron, I'd highly recommend doing that part as fast as you can, just incase it twists or moves, which is what happened to me, it twisted so badly that I just had to start again and make a new apron, which turned out fine in the end, the glue up was pretty stressful though, make sure everything's well rehearsed first and your power drill is fully charged (don't ask me how I know) or you'll be cursing like hell.

St Paul has been doing things like that a lot, recently.
I'm almost wondering if he's doing it on purpose to appear more amateur-like, as intended by things like the change of scenery to the faux-garage and building a smaller bench with "just the array of tools our average viewer typically has access to"...?

Looked like it just went while he was routing. I suppose he's quite used to plonking his tools down on the benchtop and them not moving as he's got a solid foundation.

Hoping next week to get some paint up in my workshop and get my wood to start my bench too. Already given myself a a little list of projects to get on with once complete.

Yup, clearly he's used to having the tool well and forgot he's not built that part yet...
I just find it interesting that he'd actually leave it in the video and not cunningly edit it out.

I haven't noticed PS dropping things a lot on the floor recently.
