Some Leg Work

What a cheesy title.

As per this post, I decided to hog out these mortises with a mortise chisel instead of a router. I removed most of the waste with a slightly undersized drill bit and used the mortise chisel for the rest. The chisel scrapes away a pretty clean mortise wall as you hog out the waste.

These are the legs. The mortises will receive the tenons from the rails on the ends of the table.  I ran a stopped dado to receive the end panels before mortising anything.

Next up are the rails and stiles that make up the ends of the table…

Stock for the rails, stiles, and panels
