Prepping the Leg Vise… Leg
Now that the mortises for the stretchers are complete, it’s time to cut the recess for the nut on the wood screw. I did not spend too much time taking pictures for the next few steps as I was in a bit of a hurry and really just wanted to get it done. I normally don’t like working this way but sometimes life demands it.
After using the “beefiest” hole saw ever made, to cut the hole for the wood screw, I used my router plane to make a recess for the wooden nut.
Then I started on the through mortise for the leg vise guide.
I cleaned up the mortise using a joinery float.
Here is the completed leg.
