Finetuning the knuckle joints

If the shoulders and fingers of the knuckle joints were left square, the fly rails would bind against the side rails when they were extended. To permit the joints to pivot, mark a line on the inside face of each fly rail and side rail piece parallel to the shoulder line and offset 14 inch from it. Clamp one fly rail inside-face up on a work surface with a backup board between the rail and the table. Start by using a chisel the same width as the fingers and notches to round over the end of the fingers. Then position the tip of the chisel blade on the offset line, centered on a notch, angling the tool so the cut will end at the original shoulder line. Holding the chisel with one hand, tap it with a wooden mallet to bevel the shoulder. Repeat for the remaining notches (right). Bevel the notches the same way on the long rail piece, but leave the fingers square.
