Drilling the middle stretcher mortises in the side stretchers

To determine the angle of the mortises to be drilled in the side stretchers for the middle stretcher, you have to measure the angle formed by the legs at one corner of the chair. Once the middle stretcher is ready, place a straightedge on the work surface along one front and rear leg of the chair, and another along the front legs. Adjust a sliding bevel to the angle formed by the two boards (left). Secure the side stretchers in a vise and bore each hole with the hand brace and spoon bit (photo, page 88).
