Routing the slat mortises in the rear legs

Outline the slat mortises on your rear leg blanks using the story pole shown above, centering the outlines on the inside face of each blank. Then secure one of the blanks between bench dogs. Install a %-inch mortising bit in a router equipped with an edge guide. Center the bit over the mortise outline and adjust the edge guide to butt against the stock; use the second leg blank to support the router. Make several passes, increasing the cutting depth with each pass until the mortise is completed to a depth of % inch. Repeat to rout the remaining mortises in both blanks (right), then square the corners of the cavities with a chisel.
