Here it is: the 15th post in this build thread.
Yesterday’s posting showed the initial steps in cutting the joints found at the ends of the frame’s lower tie. These joints both attach to the feet with cogged laps, and receive haunched through tenons from the frame legs. Here’s a picture to refresh, as it were, the part which I am working upon:
Here we are at the completion of the mortising for the through tenon:
As you can see, the hole does not go clean through completely, as the bottom of the piece has another 1/2″ or so of material to be removed right across (that the side with the lap joint) – there’s no point cleaning up the last bit of the mortise.
With the tenon done, I next processed the tenon haunches, and here I am cleaning up the corners with a chisel:
Another view, though I’m not sure if it’s all that clarifying:
Next up will be the latticework, or kōshi (格子). Here’s some of the stock ready to go:
All for today – thanks for dropping by and stay tuned for more posts in this thread. Next: post 16
