I am in the process of building a workbench and have eight 2-1/4" x 1-1/2" x 3" deep mortises I need to cut. Of the many ways I could go about producing these mortises, it seems using my plunge router would result in cleaner and more accurate mortises.
How would you recommend I go about routing a deep mortise: process?, type of bit (most plunge bits I have seen don't have the length to cut that deep)? and where to get such a bit if one were available?
Thinking with bearing guided trim bits, that I could gain some additional depth by using two different length trim bits so I can step my way down to a deeper mortise or use differing thickness template material and step down that way. Don't know if this would gain me much more depth however.
