The fourth day of our workbench class began by fitting the tenons into their correct mortises; it can be quite time-consuming to make sure that each one fits perfectly. A shoulder plane is handy for this task.
We then glued the dog runs that we cut yesterday, on to the bench tops.
We then finished fitting all the tenons and cut and smoothed the profiles on the foot and upper sections of the base.
All in a day’s work.
