    Default Mortising angle jig

    I made this jig for mortising some of my benches its pretty basic, a 15 degree ramp to hold the bench top.

    Looking at these pics I may want to take a day and clean up the shop.....

    I understand the need to clean up the shop… the other day we just had to stop and spend five minutes cleaning!

    I am way past the leaf blower stage.

    Thanks for the comments I will post as it progresses. I have a traditional mission style closet cabinet I need to make for an order. It would be nice just to make what I want all the time but got to pay the bills. I will juggle my time.

    Yes Bob I have air clamps I set up at the end of the table for tenoning and mortising, dovetails too.

    I have a short video of it in action I made a few years ago.

    And some pics of the setup for dovetails. Not all polished and perfect but it gets the job done.
