Dang good job. With a machine like that, I think even I could do mortise and tenon joinery. My previous attempts failed miserably. ;-(

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

That is a very well thought out machine. Only as complicated as it absolutely needed to be.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Great job, Ray. I'm definitely adding this to the "to-do" list. Thanks for publishing and sharing the drawings.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

It doesn't look like the OP is the guy who made it, Ryan vs Ray.

Been studying the design and find it pretty compelling both in it's simplicity and usability. On my list. Not sure I agree with his use of drawer slides, seems like there would be a lot of slop. I think waxed hardwood slides will work just as well - maybe dovetails to prevent lifting. Note that Ryan uses his mortiser to make a really nice KerkMaker . I spent way too much time last night pouring over his stuff. Lots of great WW thinking there. His design and build docs/videos set a high bar for quality and clarity. Also, I appreciate that Ryan isn't trying to milk a few bucks out of it.

Ray's profile says he is 69. The guy in the video is a very well kept 69 year old if they are the one and same!

I will have to watch all the videos still my first impression is that this is well set out and made, adding glue to joints gives fantastic strength so I am not sure why he did not use any. You really need a lot of work to justify making a jig like this, if you do have the work for it then this one looks like it is worthy of making. N
