Morris chairs 3, wedged tenons…

For the tenons to be wedged they need to have slots for the wedges to slide into, so I cut those with a narrow hand saw blade. The holes below the slots are to allow the tenon to spread wide easily. In this case the finished tenons will spread about 1/4″ total.

Here is the tenon through the mortise with the wedges set loosely in place.
