|The current state of the build|
|Legs of laminated 2x6 with glue and screws|
|Half lap dovetail|
|Leg set laying out sockets|
The tails were cut with my rip and crosscut panel saws and the sockets were cut with a panel saw for the angled shoulders and a jig saw to remove the waste to the baseline.
|Cutting the tails|
|Finished tail, glue and screws|
The tails were test fit and trimmed if necessary with a wide chisel. They were then glued and screwed into place. I pre-drilled and countersunk the holes everywhere to prevent splitting. I then trimmed the top tails flush with the legs since they stuck out.
