|Tenon & Spline|
|Cut apart Joint|
As you can see, the tenon is snug in the mortise and the spline is completely bedded in it's slot -- just like it's supposed to be.
I spent some of the day re-sawing the piece of Zebrawood, that is some challenging wood to plane by hand. I think the jointer plane needs to be re-sharpened since Zebrawood has what I'd term hard, sinewy grain. To simplify it somewhat I cut it into the size needed for the three table tops and managed to make one panel this evening,. The rest may come tomorrow after I get the stitches out of my knee and get ready for rehab.
