After the bent laminations are cut to length and smoothed, the rails are made up from solid poplar. The parts are dimensioned and the joinery begins.
I decided to use twin tenons on the corners for some extra strength and glue surface. The parts are laid out and the tenons are sawn first. I use a fret-saw to remove the waste between the tenons and a chisel cleans up the shoulders.
The mating mortises are marked and I remove the bulk of the waste with a brace and bit. A little chisel work and the seat frame is dry fit.
