mortise before using the bandsaw ??

Hi all, this is my first thread, need some info on this

Im about to make some new chairs for a dinning set, and im using mortise and tenon joint, the problem is that the chair back legs will not be straight, im going to use a band saw for this so I want to ask if I need to make the mortise before using the band saw.

Thanks !

It could be done either way. The area where the joint would be should be straight. You might cut the front side of the leg and sand it to the shape you need and then mortise it. After that is done then bandsaw the back. If you completely cut out the leg you could just save the piece you cut off the back of the leg to put under it while you mortise for the joints.
