I decided that I needed a mortise jig before I started my next piece of furniture. This should make mortising quick and clean. I took the plans from Woodsmith #147.
First picture was before I installed the T-track.
Photo 2 shows the 4 adjustment blocks that you use to size the mortises.
Photo 3 shows the vertical fence. There is a slot on the upper portion so you can change the angle to past 45 deg if needed.
Photo 4 shows the horizontal fence.
Woodsmith put up a video showing how to use it, which also shows the basic construction for anyone who doesn’t have the plans.
