Built to fit the original wedding invitation and a picture of the happy couple. I dug through the scrap bin which is always a great source for small parts. Getting the right sized pieces in matching characteristics is sometimes not so easy.
The parts are farther along than the pictures represent; the template routing came last before the dry fit . . . Resaw and mill the parts. A bit of figured walnut here for the detail pieces.
Some scrap ply for a template. I use the Mortise Pal as usual for this type of joint.
Template route the upper and lower rails and use the tenoning jig for the slots to receive the details.
And here a dry fit and the SU.
I have to run off to a BBQ but I will try to get the details shaped and get 'er into the clamps by tomorrow evening.
