« Part 13: Finishing up the panels Part 14 of Father - Daughter Project series Part 15: Glued up some frames »

I finally got to use the mortiser I picked up from Craig’s List last year. I have it set up with a modified cross slide vise and it works great. I have the chisels VERY sharp and they cut the Red Oak like butter.

A little hand chisel work to precise fit the lock set….

I used the router table to cut the clearance for the flange, but then I made a boo-boo…

No way I can live with this, so I’ll have to square it up, patch it and re-cut the mortise…
