Lumicor frames - II

Tuesday's output consisted of laying out the definitive dimensions and sawing parts to size. After taking them out of the clamps, it was over to the table saw to rip down the rough edges and square them up. The dado blades were then stacked with a shim in between them to achieve a groove slightly over 1/4". The overall width of the rails is 2 3/4" with a groove depth of 2".

Here's how the pieces turned out after routing and then sanding to a 220 grit. Tomorrow, the bottoms of the frames will get the same treatment and I'll dry fit them before pinning the tenons.

This is gonna look sweet... I'm thinking this configuration would look great as a component of a modern handrail.
