Wokbench Legs

It has been quite a while since I have had some time in the shop but Saturday I was able to cute the tenons on the remaining legs. Due to a combination of lack of skill and my saw plate being a bit to thin for this application I had to correct some flatness issues with the tenons before I cut the sliding dovetail angles. The open side was easily corrected using a router plane.

The inner faces were cleaned up using the large 2 inch chisel I sharpened previously. I purchased it just for this purpose and it worked great.

Then I cut the angles for the sliding dovetails and corrected any errors in the cut using a chisel. Next weekend will be the labor intensive task of flattening, thicknessing, and dimensioning the bench-top so I can lay out the mortises.
