[A fabulous project report, replete with some ambitious hand sawing, tamped
into the virtual ethers.]

Thanks for crawling out from under the porch and sharing this. I’m always
curious about design decisions, tool selection, new techniques, and so on.
How are the cross pieces attached to the base, other than the half-laps
where they meet in the middle? Mortised into the stiles, rails, both? I
really like the black base with cherry top. Totally sets off the gratuitous
use of a beautiful hardwood :-).

Also, there are no sins in oldtools, other than painting saws, and letting
a L-N scratch stock sit unused in your garage for more than 20 years.
