Frame Side Plates


With all the curved pieces done this left just the side plates and uprights which can be made with more traditional woodworking techniques. The side plates are made from 3/4” plywood and become the mounting point for the side legs.

I started by cutting the pieces to size on a table saw. I also cut most of the long side of the notch on the table saw to get a straight cut and finished the cut on the band saw.


The only other cut that needs to be made on these parts is a slot to hold the shoulder wings. This slot was far enough from the end of the board to allow me to simply clamp on a piece of wood as a guide fence that the edge of the router plate could run along. This is simpler then trying to setup for a guide collar.


The plans show notches cut at the top and bottom of these parts that are used to help align the parts during assembly. For now I decided not to cut these.
