I’m working on a design for a combo bookcase w/blanket storage and am going to use mortise and tennons for some of the joints and have had the plans for this mortising jig for over 4 years just waiting to be made. It’s from the April ‘05 Workbench mag. I just couldn’t see buying one and this seemed like it would do the trick. It seems to work very well. With a 3/8th” bit the mortise can be up to 6 1/2” long. You can use any size bit that you need. I was just trying the jig out with some scraps and the 3/8. The last pic is what I’m using to cut the tennons.
The jig has quite a bit of adjustment capabilities in moving the router in and out plus the size of the material being used could be quite large.
Some of the knobs and the hold downs I made myself. Sometimes I have a little too much time on my hands and plus I’m Cheep.
