incorporating the turnings into the peice is proving to be challenging, I turned some bun feet, they didn't fit the style, so I quickly did a cove, it looked better, i'll hopefully have more time this weekend....

so arts and crafts design doesn't incorporate raised panels?

I've been having a time of it with mortises. I can't get the chisels sharp enough. It's good steel and I even both honed it and tried it right off the stone. Just crushes the end grain in cherry if you try to square the hole. So now I have a mortising chisel, a coping saw, and a fine Japanese Dozuki saw on the way from Lee Valley. I'm not ready to invest in a mortise attachment and drill press. Maybe when the tax refund comes. ;D

two, take off your glasses

Dan, Looks like a good article. I'm snagging the PDF file now.  :)

I can't say that there wasn't any Arts and Crafts furniture built with raised panels, but certainly the furniture that came to define the style was built with flat panels - usually just a 1/4" thick board in a 1/4" groove. A lot of Shaker furniture is built the same way. I am partial to that technique, because it allows me to resaw a 4/4 board into two bookmatched panels. A thicker panel in a bed is probably a good idea, given the abuse that it's liable to receive ;)

 I make a jig to match the tenion I'm making a mortise for, then drill out most of the waste with a forsner bit, then I use a pattern bit in my plunge router to follow the template and a chisel to square up the corners.  Last I split the tenion on a table saw, and use a wedge to assemble the joint. After sanding flush, they look and feel perfect without a lot of effort.

Marcel, they are not very expensive to begin with. Around $110 from Lee's and Canadian Tire sells a Master Craft that would be warranted if it broke, probably cheaper. I have heard various reports using these things, many are not really satisfied especially with the harder woods. They say not to force the work, sounds like it can be slow, but probably no slower than hand chiseled. You just have to watch what brand of press you get to be sure it can be attached. I would much prefer a mortising machine. ;D
