We'll be making this awesome outdoor sofa set lamb sweet. So it's the ground and see how I did it. That's epic in hardwood very similar to teak. It's very waxy, just like teak some way cheaper. So I managed to get these really large pieces 240 by 65, and so it's a really good size to rip everything out of now. Something to be very aware of when you use Iroko is that it's going to move all around on you when you rip it. It sounds a huge tension and you can see on this ripping I managed to get it on camera that the board starts pinching on itself, so much so that the board cracks, and that happens pretty frequently, especially with long ripping.
You can get easily a 20 mil bow at appeal previously straight in September, so that is something to bear in mind, always buy oversize and, seeing as I have a nice new sliding table sort, I thought I'd put it to use and cut all my tenon shoulders And cut him a lot of the waste out of the Tenon's, I have ordered a dado blade for this. Sorbets still has to come from Italy. I think so. Not quite yet would have been really nice with this job. So this joinery is making up the end frame of the sofa, so here I'm gonna start the mortise I've decided to use a 25 low all the bit because it's actually way quicker to do it.
This way, then, to set up my little more to surf or this size, mortise and cutting through the waxy timber is a can be a bit sticky and clog up things like mortises, so it's actually just really quick to to work with us timber as well. So I needed to make some 20ml slats, so luckily, this number being 65 milk means I can give 320 ml slats, and then I can make a corresponding groove in one of these side frames, all those slits and then round over all the corners of the slats. Before they get glued in right, so I'm using epoxy that these are outdoor sofas. I want lots of squeeze out here, because I want the joint to be as waterproof as possible.
You will notice perhaps there that this groove doesn't go all the way to the bottom, where I'm putting the slats in so the water has somewhere to run out and not directly down into the joint. That's my small way of dealing with the weather in some way. So, what's the glue is dry, I can space the slats to the right spacing and I'm just putting one stainless steel screw in place to hold them in place. They're very small head. It's like a three mil head on these screws from work, but I'm sure you can get them replaced, places and now to cut the large backgrounds, and luckily this tend to stay very straight, so that was good and one of those long rails. I need to add a rebate that will take the slats that hold the upholstery and then more Tenon's on the sliding table.
