SWMBO says it shall be sepele. Ever since I built her a buffet out of sepele she has been hooked on the stuff.

I have to stand with her on this, I used it on my Morris chair and it has been pretty high on my list from that time on.

I need to switch my jigsaw to a cordless model that would make it so much more user friendly for breaking down stock. I typically find another way as apposed to pulling it and a cord out.

Agreed. If you’re already established on a battery system, just keep an eye out for a black Friday sale on that brand. That’s how I ended up with the one I have, it was some sort of buy the batteries and charger and get a free tool or something like that. Since I have a variety of other, Ridgid tools that made sense for me. I have a corded Bosch barrel grip that I use when I need an accurate jigsaw, so I wasn’t really worried about the cordless one as it would be just for rough work like this.

...This makes all my horizontals nearly 5" longer than I originally marked out :o
 

It hurts a little with more costly species, but I've developed the habit of making the initial rough cut to a bit larger than the maximum possible dimension for each part, for exactly this reason. Plus,it eliminates a lot of math....

I don't know what battery family you have but the Milwaukee M-18 cordless jigsaw is a beast at breaking stock down.  Fast and lots of power, even with 8/4 stock.

When I am milling parts to final thickness that require more joinery later I make a spare...

Great advice!! I usually do but on my current project did not and then proceeded to bugger up a piece ;) 

30 minutes later I had a new piece ready to go would have been much quicker to make a spare while I was milling the originals. I did an extra leg not sure why I skipped the extra stretcher.

groove and profile the frame and see how things look.

I really like the design so far.  Your wife has good taste when it comes to design and wood selection and it seems she selected a good husband that can execute her ideas well. ;)

want to stop and start the groove leaving a shoulder for more long grain glue surface for the tenons.

Good thinking. I’m working on a similar built project now where I cut the groove on the ts all the way across for simplicity’s sake and wish now, I had left shoulder room like you did. Every little bit of glue contact surface helps.

I do the same thing. But sometimes I use up the spare and need more, So I find a scrap and mill 3 sides including one face. Then if it is not too wide, I rip on edge for an oversized thickness, I then take it to the thickness planer which is already set for thickness from planing the previous boards. It takes one pass.

And the Bosch Progressor blades that you turned me onto, compliment the saw nicely.
