New Yankee Miter Bench Vs. Utimate Tool Stand #1: Concept

01-26-2009 12:31 AM by scarpenter002 | 4 comments »

So I had always planned to build Norm’s Miter Bench and Storage project in my workshop, but then I ran into the Ultimate Tool Stand. The more I started thinking about it, the more I liked the idea of combining the two concepts into one unit. I am currently planning to recess the miter saw area into the Norm’s bench. I will make the saw removable so that it may be replaced with a router table, portable planer, pocket hole jig, mortiser, sanding station, and bench top. Since the...

Building Baby Stokes' 3-in-1 Crib #7: Bridle Joints and Mortises

06-14-2011 04:14 AM by Will Stokes | 1 comment »

Before I attack the stepped pattern, it made sense to work on the bridle joints that occur where the top of the posts meet the ends of the top rails. Using my super sled and a small attachment I made for cutting tenons, I made the mortise on the top of the posts using a standard blade by making a pass, rotating the board and taking another, before finally moving the fence and using a 3rd pass to clean up the center. The result is a perfectly centered mortise. The only problem I find I have wi...

151 - Mortiser? I Hardly Know Her!

07-02-2011 03:55 PM 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 ...

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

09-14-2010 06:46 AM 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 ...

Floor Mortiser Mods and Improvements #1: Tool-Free Chisel Knob and New Clamping Face

01-16-2015 07:10 PM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

My Jet mortiser came with a brass screw to retain the hollow chisel. It worked fine, but was a little cumbersome to hold a screwdriver while setting the bit square to the fence.----- So I traded the screw for a handled knob. The new knob comes with the Powermatic 701 mortiser, and is compatible with the Jet JFM-5 and Powermatic 719. The knob has a threaded post with a brass tip to prevent marring the chisel. This setup makes it much easier to change and adjust the chisels. -----I also...

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

03-02-2007 06:05 PM 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 ...

Shop Remodel #35: All about that base!

01-18-2016 12:53 AM by bearkatwood | 1 comment »

Which came first, the mortise or the tenon?Well for me today it was the tenon. Where we left off my dog and cat were at it again Well our undefeated chunky weight champion is still on top, and I can’t get her to find another place to hang out. I had the legs done and I worked on the stretcher for the sides. The bottom ones were easy, they were just 4” wide and straight. The tops were a bit more complex and needed to have a step to keep the two thicknesses even, bu...
