I could not resist setting it on the rockers to see where I am headed. Much work remains...

Today I cut the headrest, ie crest rail, to the final curve. Photos so before and after. Makes some interesting complex curves. These curves are 41" radius cut free hand on the bandsaw. Next step is to drill holes in the bottom of the headrest for the back staves. Did I mention the top is a complex curve? The holes are the last big milling portion of the headrest, with much time in the thing I hope not to mess it up....

I got the lower back braces cut and fitted today. The fit worked out well, when my new 27/64 bradpoint gets here from Lee Valley I will drill the compound holes in the bottom of the crest rail. Just needed a bit of a look where I am going so I put the arms on with clamps and set it on the rockers to see what it looks like.

Yesterday was a high stress day. The goal was to drill the 7 holes for the back braces in the bottom of the crest rail. The procedure calls for drilling a 27/64 hole 1 1/8" deep then tilting the work piece towards you 6 degrees and redrilling down the same hole. The goal is to have a round hole on the outside and an oval hole inside at the top. I will say I could not have done it without the drill press vise, however the cheap one I picked up at Harbor Freight was just junk. I will be looking for a better quality unit.

You can see how the job is complicated by the big compound curve the headrest has on both side.

Was each hole on a different angle relative to each other?

Stressful indeed. Still outstanding work. Let me know what you land on for a drill press vise. I don't have one, but it's on the back burner of wanted tools.

That's what I thought. I get stressed just thinking how to measure and align all that.
