Thoughts on the Hollow Chisel Mortising Machine (updated 11-14-2007)

2699 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 18 comments »

In a recent Blog by Obi, he discussed using a router to cut mortises, and this started up a discussion, in which Don cautioned against getting a Hollow Chisel Mortiser. I think there are good thoughts on both sides of this debate, and I don’t mean to do anything other than offer some more experience about purchasing and using a Mortiser, and other methods of cutting mortises. As in anything, the more money you spend, the better tool you get. If I were buying just what I wanted, not what ...

Shaker Night Stand #1: The commitment

1690 days ago by NBeener | 17 comments »

I’ve always heard that—if, for example, you’re going to quit smoking—it helps to tell everybody you know that you’re going to quit, and on what date you’re going to quit. It helps get you committed (something that’s been talked about, in my case, for years!). So … here I go. My next ww project is a Shaker Style night stand. Actually, it’s two: his and hers. I’m going to build mine first, so I can butcher IT, and then tra...

Sewing Table #4: Mortise and Tenons for my Birthday

2232 days ago by Blake | 16 comments »

Time for the Mortise and tenons. First of all, thanks to all who gave me advice about the mortising machine from the last blog. I did hone and tune the chisel and mortise machine and it did cut considerably better. I also turned the chisel so that the open side faces the previously bored section and didn’t have any trouble with chips getting stuck (thanks Betsy!) So I made the layout lines on my legs: And cut the mortises. Notice the stop block for repeatability: I w...

Bragging #1: Finally Getting a Mortiser

1556 days ago by brianl | 10 comments »

When I started woodworking last year I was doing mortising with a cordless drill and a cheap set of chisels. Based on the advice of my fellow lumberjocks I eventually tried using a plunge router with a spiral upcut bit, still cleaning up the edges and corners with a chisel. Then, the other day I was browsing craigslist and saw an ad for a Jet Mortiser for $140. I quickly called and drove out to see it. The mortiser was in pristine condition, only used once and came with three chisel...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #8: Mortises and tenons - Making progress!!

1408 days ago by sras | 8 comments »

Summer has flown by. I found a little time here and there to work on the stools. It never seemed like much, but when I look at the result I can see significant progress. I’ll show how I spent my summer (when I was in the shop). Preliminary Leg Shaping Several of the leg pieces shifted shape during the rough cut process. The final shape of the back legs requires some material removal. I decided to shape the side that removed material from the center of the leg. If the wood shifted ...

A Beginner's Progress #2: The First Project Begins

2608 days ago by jstewart | 7 comments »

I’ve decided to build a simple nightstand as my first project (or at least my first project since buying a table saw and joining LumberJocks.com). The basic design of the nightstand comes from a fellow LuberJock. Check out the original here. Last weekend I bought the lumber, $65 of Red Oak from the local lumberyard with a great hardwood selection. I highly recommend this place (Schutte Lumber) to anybody in the Kansas City area. I pulled out the mitre saw to chop everything dow...

151 - Mortiser? I Hardly Know Her!

1116 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 5 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options If you make a lot of mortise and tenon joints, a Hollow Chisel Mortiser is a tool you should really consider. It makes quick work of the repetitive task of batching out mortises. And unlike the router, it leaves nice square ends that pair perfectly with tenons made at the tablesaw or cut by hand. This is a fairly comprehensive video and tells you pretty much everything you need to know to purchase, set up, and use a ...
