Ok, Daughter wanted a small Dinette Table for the kitchen. I had some old planks down in the Dungeon Shop. Milled up an old Oak 2x8 into four leg blanks.This is what passes as a tablesaw nowadays. I used the edge of the saw's base to set the width of the rip. Then a little handplane work to taper the blanks I marked out the taper, and started at the foot, working my way back up the leg. Last pass gave me a tapered leg, and I didn't even have to sand anything. Next up, aprons and a top. Top was the easy part. I had an old waterbed frame side, a 2x10 of pine. Crosscut into two 36" long slabs. Now, waterbeds sit on a plywood base, and ther side frames have a rabate along one edge. I flipped one slab over, planed the two rebates to match each other, and off to the clamps it went, more about that later. Aprons: I had some old 1x oak. Just some nasty stuff. Cut a pattern out for the ends and the front & back ones. I hate straight aprons. Here is both the top, and the aprons. Not having a tablesaw might have slowed things a bit? Nope, this is to be a "Hand-made" project. Aprons needed tenons. Laid them out, cut the shoulder line with a coping saw, and chopped the waste away with a chisel. Pared down to the lines, flipped the apron and made anothe side. Ths is what a handtool tenon looks like. i think each tenon might have taken 10 minutes, start to finish. As for cutting these aprons to length? A Hand saw was used, of course. Ok, got the tenons done, back to the legs. Needed a few mortises for the tenons tot go into. Over the years, I grew tired of "blowouts at the top of the legs. So, I just made the mortise go on out the end of the leg. I used that coping saw (again) to kerf a line Then a chisel to mark the bottom of the mortise. I just chopped a square hole near where the mortise ended. , using a 5/16" chisel. I then used the same chisel to "pop out" the waste. looks like a part two, coming up?
