A Photo of Chopping the Double Mortise

Title says it all. A quick photo of chopping the mortises before chopping out the middle web.

I'll use a 1" chisel to chop out the middle and then the 1 1/2" bench chisel to finish up the ends and maybe smooth the walls a little.


  1. Ken I forgot to ask you, did you get the PW DVD on the Will & Chris making benches? If so, is worth getting to learn anything from?

  2. Ralph,

    Yes, If you are going to build the bench or steal parts of it to build a different bench I would get the video. The part on building the vise and making the tusk is worth the note.
