A little more work on the comedy/tragedy masks tonight. The tenon was removed, the bottom tried and turned away and the outside sanded smooth.
The piece was then taken to the band saw and cut in half. I had to make a second cut to even up both halves. They're now within 1/8" of each other in width and length.
The bottom was left thicker than I wanted, the wood was oriented end grain and the dry hard maple was very difficult to cut. On the plus side it leaves us a little more meat to drill the mounting holes.
