Post: RE: Table and chairs project - dry fit plinth

More progress today, got the base/plinth assembly dry fitted - I'm really pleased with it. The half lap on the 80 x 90mm section for the feet was a pig to do.  The bandsaw throat is not big enough ...

Because I've been slow in posting, the work has actually moved on quite a bit, hence several posts on the same day.  In reality this sequence covers several weeks. Not quite so cold today, started at...

Here is the design for the chairs : Think I need to refine the curve of the back legs, it looks a bit clunky here.  Will probably make a full scale mock up.
