no previous part Part 1 of LAMP TABLE series no next part

Mortise!http://mortise(Mortise 2)!I was at a local joinery the other day so I decided to pick up so lumber for the lamp table project I was thinking of doing. I picked up some 2×2 american white oak. I went home that day and cut the oak down to 4 18inch lenghts for the legs. I marked the mortises out using a mortise gauge and decided to route the mortises out as i have never tried this method before. ( I’m a hand tool guy ) For this I though I’d go out ant treat my self to a new router bit, I picked up a 1/2’’ trend routing plunge cutting bit. ( I think trend router bits are now out in the states there worth a try ). I used the side fence on my router and cut the haunched mortise in steps. I first cut the ’’haunch’’ in the tennon and cut the full tennon out. After this I cleaned up the round end of the mortise and called it a day please let me know of any tips you have of on the cutting of mortises on a router Thanks!!!! PS: I’ll have the next part out on friday Thats the tennons and glue up.
