Re: Wedge is the secret to perfect angled mortise-and-tenon joints

Matt -
I am building two chairs using the project plans for the arts and crafts side chair by Kevin Rodel. The stretchers connecting the back legs to the front legs are 85.5 degrees. What I have done on my prototype is to modify a router box so that the supports are at 85.5 degrees. It seems to work OK, but always looking for ways to improve accuracy.

Thanks!
Bill

Re: Wedge is the secret to perfect angled mortise-and-tenon joints

Sound geometry for legs that are parallel front to back.

Is there a similar setup for legs that are angled for a chair where the front legs are wider than the back legs?

(as seen from above)
