Mortis & Tenon
I wanted all of my boards to align to create a smooth surface on the
front face of my bench, so I carefully laid out my mortis locations.
Using a 1/2" flat tip drill bit, I removed most of the mortis
followed up with a wood chisel to clean up the mortis. After
practice, I got much more proficient and my workmanship improved a lot.
Using a small board as a straight edge, I used a router to cut my
tenons. This worked really well.
