Now that i have a jig ( that can quickly make m/t’s, I had it tested with an actual project. Its a small table for my kid’s laser printer using recycled pines. The project had a total of 34 pairs of mortises and tenons but all cuttings were completed in just less than 2 hours on my new jig. The nicest part is I only need to measure once for the common dimensions and cutting is a breeze with repeating accuracy. I still can’t believe how amazing my jig is.

Excellent work on pine wood. Definitely pinework will require routing for the m/t joint. Due to its brittleness, using chisels will be very difficult as I had experienced. Your jig is really very useful. Keep it up.
Good job.

Thanks Bert, yes this will the last one on pinewoods and its about time getting serious by using real hardwoods on forthcoming projects. I’ll start saving now. ;-)

Excellent work, Armand. This proves that a well thought out procedure yields quality work in a shorter time. Look forward to seeing more.
