I have a project coming up that I would like to utilize mortise and tenon joinery for. After investigating a few options, I determined that the easiest and most powerful approach is to cut mortises with a router. This jig was very cheap and easy to create. Construction plans are described in detailed in shop notes #90.
Adjustable guides attached to the hardboard base align the cut
Viewed from the side, the adjustable guides straddle the work piece and allow for a precise cut.
