There are lots of different elements to developing a twist-free door, and each step we take ensures that the doors come out as planned. We chop the mortise holes out first, because we always fit the tenons to the mortise and rarely the mortise to the tenon. As we progress each tenon, we choose different methods of cutting both mortise and tenon to show the options available to us as hand tool enthusiasts. With door making, it’s the small things that matter the most, so we’re hoping that by bringing you in close with the skills of the videographers, you will see exactly what determines the most positive outcome for your doors.
