    It is not clear to me what is the right way to layout mortises and tenons in my situation. I need to insert a cross in a frame in which the rails are not flash with the stiles but 4 millimetres offset.
    In my opinion I should place a piece of wood on the rail and between the stiles and plane it flash with the stiles to compensate the difference, and then mark as usual. But maybe there is a better idea.

    I’ve never come across such a situation yet, but using that 4mm thick piece of wood should to the trick.

    How did you do all the other mortises that are offset by 4mm?

    Couldn’t you simply set the mortising gauge 4 mm different?
