Looks good to me David, mine was a mess!
I will post some pictures when I get some time to start my next. Will have to wait for me to flatten and square it, so could take me a while !!

Great advice, thank you. I must admit I had noticed the vice on the workmate was rubbish and as you mentioned, it was taking a lot of the force out from my chisel blows. I quickly discovered working on top of some MDF on the floor was much better.
I’m just attempting to square a new piece of timber so I can try again. I will take on board the great advice

I feeel better after reading all these comments – I too recently purhased some Narex chisels and found the same issue. Good to know after some more sharpening they should be good.

I am certainly not put off in any way, and I’m starting my second right away. Time to improve! I might try some new stones for sharpening as my current inherited oil stones don’t seem overly effective. Thank you all for replies – I may well record my next mortise and get some tips as you suggest @etmo
