Using a story pole

To help you size and prepare the chair legs, mark key dimensions and the location of mortises on a shop-made story pole. Made from a strip of plywood, the story pole shown above includes the length of the front and rear legs, and the placement of the stretcher, rail, and slat mortises. Refer to the side view illustration of the Enfield chair on page 27 for the height of each element. The marks on the jig can then be used to cut the leg blanks to length and outline the mortises on the blanks. Note that the mortises for the front or back stretchers or rails are offset inch lower than the mortises for the side ones to avoid weakening the legs. Label the story pole and keep it for future chair-making.
