I will be building a kitchen island. One side will have two 5”x5” legs. I am planning on doing mortise and tendon 90 degrees into each leg. I have never done mortise and tendon and have several questions. Since I will only be doing 2 for each leg, I was going to use the table saw with a dado to create the tendons. I was then planning to just drill for the mortise and either use a chisel or router. I could make my own guide. Is this reasonable or should I look at some type of jig? Also should I put wood dowels through for added strength.
