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.
I finished my cutting board this weekend and started layout on the bedside table. Lucky for me Marc, Matt and Shannon were talking about build order on thelast Woodtalk Online. Its a good one and worth a listen. So I sat down and made my outline/build order from the plans and sketch up file. And … I found a great place to put the outline and parts list.
