« Part 1: Video 1 Part 2 of Super Simple Shoji Frame series Part 3: Video 3 »

This turned out to be a super simple Shoji frame. Typically a shoji frame will have several divisions. The person this is going to is into crochet crafts. It will be used as a creative template of sorts. I will show how to make accurate half lap joints both on the ends of the workpiece as well as in the middle and also how to cut a precise mortise for a hinge. 24 half lap joints total. Super simple, super strong, super easy. This will be a 3 part series. Hope you enjoy!

Video 3 is ready. Click “Video 3” in the upper right corner to see video 3.

Good job. Any time a chisel is that close to my fingers I am usually bleeding.
