« Part 15: Got good results with the stain! Part 16 of Morris Chair Project! series Part 17: Handcut mortises! »

I been working more mortise and tenons for the last few days, I also cut finger while I was cleaning the tenons with my Japanese Chisels. Ouch that hurt! I did not get any shots of cutting the tenons, I use my tenoning jig.

Nice looking mortiser. Practice makes perfect but don’t practice cutting your fingers. Not good… ;0)

Very cool, Charles.

I’m still having a ton of fun, watching your progress updates.

I’ve said this before: so far … there’s at least a blood spot or two on everything I’ve built :-)

Degoose has got that right, you are a great cabinet maker. You can tell by the great mortise and tenons you’re making, and the furniture you’ve already made. Go get em Charles, nothing can stop you, not even a little blood loss. LOL. I know after losing the end of a finger last Christmas. LOL. mike

Hey Charles,
What brand is your mortiser? I picked one up used the other day. Used but never taken out of the box. It is a Grizzly. I don’t know how good it will be but time will tell.

I am with Matt. I like the hold downs on your machine. If we know the brand perhaps I can get them for my machine.

Hey Matt and Roz,

I’m pretty sure that Rockler sells those…. I bought the add-on table, fence, and rollers( I think that’s what you are calling the holddowns) for my Delta mortiser, but they’ll work on any machine…. Just check with them to be sure…..I think it was about $50 for it all, but, I think you can just buy the rollers, but I could be wrong .
One thing….they sure work good..
