I ran into a bit of a unique challenge in cutting the triple tenons for the solid back for the sideboard. Because the front of the carcass is really three independent cases, and the sides use frame and panel construction, the solid tenoned back piece provides much needed structural integrity. However, this piece ends up being nearly five feet long, which make traditional methods for cutting the split tenons either challenging or impossible. This episode focuses on how I tackled this problem using a nice combination of hand and power tools. One more testament for a blended shop.
I also specifically wanted to take the opportunity to thank Richard Barret from Birmingham, AL for his very kind words in a comment on the last post. I have intentionally kept this blog ad free, as I do this purely out of a passion for woodworking. I don't make a penny from this blog, but feedback like Richard's is worth far more to me than any monetary compensation. Thanks Richard.
