When you’ve got used to cutting straight, square and to the line, Paul introduces angled shoulders to tenons and mortise holes to correspond with the same awkward-looking angles. Don’t worry — the system Paul has developed for this kind of work works perfectly. You won’t find instruction on this anywhere else, so we focussed on clarity that will equip you for other projects with angled shoulder lines in the future of your woodworking. Watching Paul chop the mortises at such unusual angles might seem a little daunting, but when you are done and you apply clamping pressure, you will feel more rewarded than you have ever felt before. We are sure that you will enjoy watching and the challenge of making these complex joints.
