I know it has to be different in today's situation but when our daughter was going through this we found that the safest and sanest thing to do was stand back out of the way and just sign the checks.;)

LOL yep the check signing has been done for months but sometimes I just can't help myself...open mouth insert foot LOL.

Amen! My daughter married about 22 years ago to a son of an ex vp from Exxon. Our guest list was for about 40 or so, theirs was over200. I knew right then that I was in over my head. The reception was at some fancy ass hotel and a flat rate for open bar. Afterwards a few of my group gathered in the bar for a night cap, not knowing that open bar had closed 10 minutes earlier. Bar tender brought me a tab for over $300. At least daughter was happy and we have 2 wonderful grandkids to show for it. 

Sorry Nut, I think we hj your project.

They did push their ceremony/ reception to July 2021 so that's good but they  still want to be married this year so they plan to have a small ceremony in August I'm like you know you can go to the court house and in 5 min be legally married right...yeah not the right thing to say!  I feel bad for them but my normally very intelligent and grounded daughter is so emotionally tied to this dang wedding its unbelievable. 

Were they supposed to have their ceremony during this pandemic and had to move it?

I apparently am marrying into the wrong family because we're the only ones writing checks.

Ooff that's rough for them. I can't imagine the amount of stress that must have put on them and disappointment.

Megan and I talked about it and if for what ever reason we found ourselves in that spot we'd just do the courthouse wedding and them probably a reception later.

Really nice work nut. Just finished reading the whole thread for the first time. May be an ignorant question, but why put in twin tenons rather than one single one if it isn’t a through tenon and won’t be seen? Or maybe I missed that it was a through tenon?

Thanks for the reply and the great explanation. Haven’t done any twin tenons before, will have to try that.

They are just like a regular M&T but it is helpful to work them backwards with the tenon 1st and then the mortise 2nd. I should credit my source on this is Mr. Cremona on his Side Board build in the guild.

The double tenon was on my band saw actually. I don't own a tenoning jig, there was a time I wanted one but I've gotten by with out so i imagine I'll keep managing.

Man, those are sweet! How did the scrapers come out of the box! At that price, I just ordered me a couple. Thanks for the lead.

Looking great, Drew! Do you set your shave a little lighter on one side? I feel like this help to quickly adjust the cut when chatter is a problem.

Well that's not a bad thing.  I'm guessing you wanna say "I'm done" before "I do".

When is the big day, by the way?
