Thanks for all the quick help. The store-bought jig looks like a nice tool, but the price is pretty steep. I like GarageWoodworks DIY jig. The design and set up are much simpler than other shop-built options I’ve seen on and other sites. I also spent about 20 minutes watching a couple of YouTube videos from woodcraft about the various types of joinery including mortise and tenon, loose tenon, biscuits, dowels and pocket screws. That reminded me that I have a pocket screw jig already and that the false frames in this project are an ideal application for a tool I already have. My guess is that sometime in the not-too-distant future I will be making an investment in a shop-built mortising fixture.

Again, thanks for the great tips.
