Time for a Break

The slip tenons are done for now.  I check them all for thickness and mark one end.  The "1" on the end of this one tells me it is .371" thick, as measured with calipers.  I keep them in a plastic bag so they don't see any changes in relative humidity (and therefore maintain their current moisture content/dimensions). The slips will be fine tuned to individual mortises later on, but they can take a break for now.
