Hi all. While I wait for my wood to acclimate, I’ve been practicing some of the individual skills required for the project. My original plan was for through mortises. I have a mortising press. I’m surprised by how unscientific that drilling. The clamp down fence is pretty lame, IMO. (Jet).

I tried the tennon by hand. Wow. Do I stink. I don’t have 240V for my great new cabinet saw. I tried cutting it by hand. Just plain terrible. I’ll try it with the band saw.

I’m now thinking of blind tenons. What a shame. I love the look of our old interior doors in the house.
