It is coming together really slowly. Not sure how others did it but I find it most challenging is the scale. Since I opted to deal with slab like construction, it is big and heavy and working with large mortises on a heavy sugar maple in large scale is just time consuming task.
The legs and structure are still manageable as they are reclaimed firs. Still, if there was any lesson learnt from using reclaimed wood, the most important before purchase inspection is ensuring there are limited nails. If there are nails, have to make sure they are not cut nails.
Cut nails were old and soft steel, mostly rotted inside the wood.
Chopping off some tenons, ready for joint construction. Also chamfer the legs to prevent splintering when moving around
