    oowafIT BOTTOMRAil\\'hen the tenons for the LOprails arc fin-ished. the tenons 011 the bottom rails can becut. This is a cut-to-fit operation. The keything here it< not the overall length of thebottom rail. bUL the distance br'"wl tileshoulders of the tenons. This is determinedby the distance between the angled stiles.So, temporariJy clamp the stiles to the LOprail. see Filt. 24.Shop Note: To ccncemrate clamping pres-

    sure. I used two 15' wedges. see Fig. 24.Then tokeep the wedges from slipping whenthe clamps are tightened. I ",ounted dowelsat the top ends. see Detail in Fi~. 2-1.

    MAKE ONI! TSNON. The trick to makingthe rail lit i. cutting the tenon on one end tofinal thickness fil'$\. see Fig. 21). (Usc theangle-seuing block LOset the miter gaUj(l!and cut both faces of the tenon.)

    MARK OPPOSITESHOULDER. Now. theinside measurement between the totiles canbe transferred directly to the otber end oftbe bottom rail.To do this, lay the rail down so the tenon

    is on tOP of the stile with th. shoulderbutted tighlly again.t the inside edge ofthe stile. _ Fig. 2.';. Then mark thv in.idCledge of the opposite stile on the rail,~IAKE THE TENON. Now the tenon on

    this end can be cut w length. Note: Beginby cutting outside the line. The objt'Ct is toshave a little off the shoulde rs until they fitbet ween the stiles with no gaps. see J'-ig.26. Finally. cut the tenon length LOthedepth of the mortise. see Fig-.27.


    The Iasl step L< cutting the groo,('l, for thepanel on the inside edge of all frame pieces,To do this. I mounted a slot cutler ill therouter table, see Fig. 28.

    Shop Note: 'l'hI! slot cutter tends to tearthe edges of the groove. To lessen the tear-ing, make a light pass (h'" deep) fet.odingtheworkpiece backward. (That is. feed theworkpiece from lea to lighL)'l'hen make thefull-depth cut, feeding from light to left.ROUT~'TU.F.s.To get the feel of roulinJ{

    ,\lith the slot cutler, 1routed the grooves mthe eules firs t. The groove starts at onemortise and ends at another, r clampedstop blocks LOan extension on the fenee toprevent cvershooting the cut. see fig. 2.~.

    ROUTBOTTOM RAIL. Routing the 00\-tom rail is the same as the stiles, except thegroove is straight through from end to end.

    ROUTTOP RAIL To rout the groove onthe arched inner edge of the top rail, theworkpiece is fed freehand against the bit'$pilot. see Fill. 29. Note: A freehand passnear a slot cutter i:o: scary, ~"orsafety, 1putthe guard in place and used a grout trowel(see ll00d0mitl! No. ~7)to glip the rail.CIiECKP1'll As one last check, I clamped
