Cutting the corner uprights

May 24th 2003: Now comes the time to mark out the mortises in the six uprights - each are different so care is needs to be taken to get everything correct!

The six corner uprights - A1,A2,A3,A4,A5,A6

Marking out the mortises on the uprights (A1,A2,A3,A4,A5,A6)

Mortises cut with a 1.5" flat bit and a sharp chisel!

The back of the teahouse fitted together on the floor

Some of the side pieces fitted - the roof will fit onto the tenons of the uprights
