I need to add a tenon to each end of the curved stretcher. I use my full-scale drawing to find the tenon locations.
After marking with a knife, I use a chisel to define a small v-groove to help guide the saw.
Since this is a 6′ long piece, I brought a tool to the wood in order to quickly remove the cheek waste. The Festool TS55 was fast.
Finally, used my router plane to clean up the cheeks.
