Bedside Table Leg Mortises

Cutting mortises is probably my least favorite task to perform.  I’ve been trying out a new jig.  I found this jig on the Fine Woodworking site.  Unfortunately, a subscription is required to access it, but its a subscription I’ve found to be well worth it.  You can find the video here (subscription also required).

Basically, its a big piece of squared up maple with a track to run the router fence in.

    Hi Marilyn, do you have an edge guide for your router? That seems more a more direct approach. Or maybe it is just I am not in a jig mood these days. More of a waltz in double time…then a long nap.

  2. Hi
    Nice work, young woman. Good job.

    I downloaded the article – thanks for pointing it out to me. Maybe I can give it a try soon.

  4. Well no wonder you don’t like cutting mortises. I didn’t either with that screaming machine! 😉
