What a cheesy title.
As per this post, I decided to hog out these mortises with a mortise chisel instead of a router. I removed most of the waste with a slightly undersized drill bit and used the mortise chisel for the rest. The chisel scrapes away a pretty clean mortise wall as you hog out the waste.
These are the legs. The mortises will receive the tenons from the rails on the ends of the table. I ran a stopped dado to receive the end panels before mortising anything.
Next up are the rails and stiles that make up the ends of the table…
