Hi All,

I bought my first plunge router decades ago with a single purpose in mind, to cut mortises for loose tenon joinery accurately and efficiently and along the way I’ve built a number of router mortising jigs for that purpose.  I’ve learned about shop built mortising jigs, their design, function and accuracy and what I’ve learned I’ve built into this shop built mortising jig.



This shop built mortising jig is easy to use and extremely accurate. If you’d like broaden your woodworking skills to include loose tenon joinery or if you’re looking to build an accurate and versatile mortising jig, you owe it to yourself to have a look at this jig.





Be forewarned, the article is over 6,000 words long and contains 85 photos and illustrations but I assure you, it’s worth the read.

All the best
