New Video: Mortise Notes

I made a little video with some mortising notes, including the grain-direction tidbit that I posted about a while back. Aside from some sweet mortising action, it features an impersonation of a riveting figure who rives.

It features some boring action, which I don’t think I’ve done in a video before:

That chunk of southern yellow pine has really hardened up. I forget how old it is. It’s approaching ossifrage status.

  1. Great stuff. I especially like the bit about grain direction when paring the side walls. This is something that took me several years to realize and I have incorporated into my own methods within the last year or two.
