In this week’s video, I make a self-centering mortise jig. This is a super easy build and makes cutting mortises a breeze! All you need are two 6 inch mending plates from the hardware store, a 1.5 inch thick block of wood, some scrap plywood, a few screws, some nuts, bolts and washers. The inspiration for this jig comes from the original plans found in wood magazine online (link found below) with some of my own modifications to include guide rails customized to my plunge router.
