Today I milled the 64 pieces that will be laminated to together to form the chair bottoms. I cut them to 16 1/2 inches in length using the mitre saw. Then I used that same saw with a stop to make a cut on all the pieces that would only go 3/4 of an inch deep.
Then I used the table saw to cut lengthwise along each piece, completing what is essentially a big notch to allow a piece of plywood to fit snugly inside. Next week I can glue them up and start assembling the entire tables.
