Fence ensures a straight mortise
4 To make the mortises, drill overlapping holes 1/4" deep in the base (C) where shown on the pattern in photo. Use a chisel to clean up the edges and square the corners of the mortises. Bandsaw or scrollsaw the base to shape.
5 Rout the 1/16" chamfer on the bottom of the base (C) using a starter pin, as you did earlier. Change to a 1/4" round-over bit, leave the starter pin in place, and rout the top of the base. Remove the pattern, and finish-sand to 220 grit.
