Timberframed mailbox post

Just about finished, all that's left is to put it out by the road. Main joint is a housed wedged through mortise, brace is blind mortise and tenon at both ends.

Tools used, in the order of laying about: hatchet, commander, gimlet, saw, brace and bit, chisel, plane, pencil, mallet, dividers, square, screwdriver (to adjust plane) clamp.

No electricity was used in this project. Cheats are: glued up a part that split, used cut nails for added security on the brace.
