Frame sanded and beams pegged

I sanded and dismantled the frame, and made sure the
tenons fitted the best they could. Then locked the beams in the frame
with trunnels and with the first lashing at both ends.

Trunnels wedged and fitted.

The frame clamped and the first holes drilled for the locking dowels.

Dowels in place ready for sanding.

After all the beams are locked with dowels, every other
beam is lashed against the tenon.

Next up finish the lashings.
