Cutting the corner uprights
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!

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 complete upright A1
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
