Base and ledger strip installed

I got a chance this week to installed the ledger strip around the base.

I used my skewed rabbet plane to make the grooves and cleaned it up with a chisel plane.  The strip has a 1/2″ groove that’s about an 1/8″ deep.  That fits snuggly into the groove cut into the stretchers.

I’ll be making the shelf next and then on to the deadman.
