« Part 13: Accuracy - Maybe Just a Crazy Idea Part 14 of Delta Mortiser 14-651 series Part 15: Added depth gauge »

Made my first project using the new Mortising Machine. It’s a rough Arts and Crafts style picture frame.

Material is 1×3 pine which is part of why it’s pretty rough.

I didn’t want to do a lot of glue clean-up so the only glue is on dowels that pin in each corner. The tenons fit pretty tight by themselves.

I have an old map from 1897 of the city I live in that I wanted to frame.

Besides the machine I tried some new techniques with some success. As usual I learned a lot and for me that’s what it’s all about.

Looks from here that the joints are tight. A dedicated mortising machine is fun! I think I have the same model and I am satisfied with it.

Have your say...
