Gotta like doing new projects (the tools that come with it)
I keep looking at buying dedicated mortiser.
Maybe I can use the excuse “Well Don has one, I should too)
Good Luck with your project !

I’ve used weaker excuses than that. There’s always room for more tools.

I have a Delta 14-651 mortiser thatr I use all the time. You may also want to purchase a tenoning jig for your table saw as well. I have a Delta Tenoning jig 34-184 that completes the mortise and tenon joint.

Good luck on your upcoming project. Please share with us when you have it completed
