|Establishing the kerf|
|Finishing the cut|
|All straight cuts complete|
In the following picture I've already made the first cut of the two cuts that are used to remove the bulk of the waste. But I learned a little bit as I went along. I started on the right-most recess and worked left. You can see that I started my coping cut very low at first and started higher in later recesses.
|First saw cut in removing waste|
|Marks showing where I might start a coping cut|
|Note the hand position - left hand to stabilize and help push/pull|
|Probably a better hand position|
|Next up: chiseling out the bottoms|
|Chiseling out the bottoms|
|Skewing the chisel helped a little|
After quite a bit of wrangling with chisels, I got the bottoms down. And the baseline looks pretty well intact - at least on this side of this board.
|One end done|
Next time: Laying out and cutting the tails ...
