Gluing up the legs and stretchers

To make wedges for the kerfs, cut some hardwood pieces on the band saw slightly less than inch long and % inch thick at the base, tapering to a point. Start by gluing the stretchers to the legs. Spread some adhesive on the wedges and in the kerfs as well as on the stretcher tenons and the mortises in the legs, and insert the wedges into their kerfs. Fit the stretcher and legs together, using a wooden mallet to tap the pieces into final position. You can leave the wedges protruding from the kerfs (inset); they will sit flush with the ends of the legs and stretchers when you tap the joints together. Next, glue the wedges into the legs, spread adhesive on the contacting surfaces between the legs and the seat, and tap the legs into position (left).
