|Planing cradle shown in lower right hand corner (the thing with the v-notch)|
I still needed more conventional workholding to maintain the board's position. This could be dogs, a planing stop, battens, etc, but in this case I used a handscrew clamp and another board to shim it up, because I was working on the bottom face of my bench-in-progress, and I don't have much workholding.
Why do any of this?
To turn these:
|Three square-stock leg-blanks. Also shown: the rest of the adjustable stool in the background, and my note reminding myself of what the shoulder lines are so I could resume later.|
|Three tapered legs, made only by layout and planing. Oh, and a carcass saw if you count the fact that the tenon shoulders have been cut already.|
That's all for now. If you missed the summary of this stool, check it out here, or see all my completed projects.
