Had to take a break for fishing, but got a little more done yesterday. These pics are the second short stretcher btwn the legs. A lot of marking, sawing and then test fitting and tuning the tenons of the stretcher to get a smooth fit. The results were much better than the first stretcher.

Test Fit:

Fitting in the Legs and Bench:

Marking up the first long stretcher:

No more work until the New Year, that is, when I am not fishing.

Merry Christmas everyone!

No, not yet. When we got back from visiting our grand daughter, we were both very sick. Then I had to replace a section of the fence that blew down while we were gone, finished that yesterday. Going fishing in the morning and I might get to it in the next day or two.

Thanks Thor, hope you had a Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year.
Looking forward to getting back home so I can continue working on the bench.

Speaking from having done this recently, that is a ton of labour on those mortises. Keep going man you are almost done. Looking massive as usual. Great job.
