Holes are a mainstay of woodworking. Square holes for things like mortise and tenon joinery is standard practice. You can cut them with chisels, even the specialty /”mortising chisel/” and by machine. But in the past years the perfect machine for making square holes has been left by the wayside.
So today I explore the mortising machine/hollow chisel mortiser and offer up lots of little tips along the way.
This video is an excerpt from the Router Table Build series which will be behind a paywall. But this portion of a larger segment on cutting the joinery of the frame in our frame and panel construction is specialized enough I thought it’d make a good tip.
So enjoy and keep your eyes out for our Router Table Build series.
