EW Desk progress

I received my new chisels in the mail this week (3/4 & 1") - I put the new chisel to work today with shaping up 4 mortises and as many tenons.

This mortise on the leg was cut with hand saws only. The cleanup wasn't too bad...

The fit on this leg really isn't very good. Ugh, thank gosh for sandpaper.

The leg and the side went together OK, but it was way off initially (actually, because of a cut on the table saw). It had to be cleaned up with the hand tools.

The 2 front legs and their sides connected along with the future stock.
