|Trimming the legs in the seat.|
|A final scrape before finish.|
|Working on the stretchers. I forgot to mention that the through-dowels were used instead of my intended mortise and tenon stretchers to save a bit of time. I'm glad I did.|
I realized I had some store-bought 16mm beech dowels that would work perfectly with a 5/8" hole drilled with my brace. No shoulders, no nothing else. Just glue and a wedge, easy peasy. We'll see over time if this joint is strong enough. Had I all the time in the world, I would prefer drawbored tenons for this step, but I totally leapfrogged all of the time required for that joint in using the dowels instead.
|Final trim on the stretchers. After trying other tools, I decided the best tool for the job is a chisel.|
|This is a three-in-one shop appliance. Besides sitting on it, it makes a fine extension to my sawbench...|
|And my tool chest.|
