I don't want to downplay the difficulty but you could put a positive spin on it. Try this:eoinsgaff":35d517ea said:Cheers Custard and Andy.
Cutting the ‘dish’ out of the top adds a further issue for the tenons. My first thought was to cut, fit, wedge and glue them in place before making the ‘dish’ but this is likely to uncover poorly fitting tenons.
Alan Peters does recommend cutting out the mortises and filling with a softwood while planing out the ‘dish’.
There may be a clue in there...
