So this one, unfortunately, goes into the Doh! files. See it you can figure out what I did wrong (its not hard).
I started out by drilling the holes for the draw bore pegs in the bottom of the chop.
Then I marked the location to drill on the tenon.
Here you can see the lined up hole. The holes on the tenon should be slightly off set. (hint – this is where I boo booed.)
After pounding the peg material through the dowel plate to make pegs, I whittle the ends so that they will make the cruve.
Here are the pieces all lined up so that I can add glue to the tenon (not necessary).
Once the pegs were pounded in, I used my flush cut saw to trim them.
The pegs were a little messy after trimming.
So rasp to the rescue.
Here’s how it turned out. Notice the 1/16″ gap. Darn! The tenon was a perfect fit prior to pegging. Figured it out yet?
The parallel guide is now centered through the mortise.
And its starting to look like a vise!
