mortise and tenon

Ah… more woodworking. Last week I learned to make mortise and tenon joint. it’s one of the more recognizable joints. I haven’t done the drawing for this, but I will… eventually. Meanwhile, here it is, in all of its glory! (with a drawing!)

I made a mistake when I first started to make stop cuts. I cut too far! You can see the mistake on the mortise part (where the tenon goes into), just to the left of the tenon on the above image.

at least the ends had all the lines line up. Yay!
