With the back legs having had their initial shaping, Paul goes through the layout of the mortices for the front and back legs. Once he has ensured that the mortices match up between each set of legs and are the correct distances in from the outside edge, he cuts a mortice on a front leg.

Paul shows a few ways to temporarily attach a guide block to help keep your chisel square when chopping a mortise. This is particularly useful when you don’t have a guide made or a flat surface to register the guide against or are only chopping a few mortises.

Please note, here are two videos on:
