Frame Rework

The fit of the frame sides is not good and the color worse.spending time analyzing my mistakes it is clear that I ahve not cut the Tenons straight again. The mortises are fine but there needs to be more foocus when I remove the wood for the tenons. Try again.

Taking more care I measured and chiseled out knife wall for the saw cuts. The lumber already looks a better match. The preparation gives me time to consider how to make the Tenons. More care with the router plane and perhaps a longer bed on theplane would help. Roughing the tenon out with a saw, I then take the router plane to size and hopefully maintain a square tenon.

While I’m sharpening my router I also notice the angled blade which I have never used. Giving it a whirl I find it cuts well and I like the fact that I am putting less pressure into the cut. Perhaps this has been causing me to lean the router slightly and ending with an angled tenon.

    Don’t want to tell you something you may already know but….. it’s the teacher in me! When I use my large, old Stanley router plane for tenons I either put two tenons end to end or have a piece of stock the thickness of the board being tenoned in front of it. This way I can support the router plane parallel to the tenon. Any hints on sharpening those pesky router plane blades?

    The teacher in you is much appreciated. Lots of things to learn! The verita blades have a little jig that helps some with the sharpening, but in reality I think there is an opportunity for a small tool maker to come up with a solution.
