Default New Member making Chairs

I discovered this forum while doing an internet search trying to learn about making mortises in chairs. I am making 6 chairs for a dining room table and was wanting an efficient way to make mortises. I ran across a website for the Mortise Pal which led me to this forum. I was considering making slots for a guide bushing in templates. I haven't done this before so I wasn't sure if I could be accurate enough with drill bits and a scroll saw. Has anyone tried this?

I am a woodworking hobbyist. I enjoy making furniture, scale models, and intarsia. I have been doing woodworking for 30+ years. In the beginning my projects were simple and crude. But I have gradually improved my skills and increased the difficulty of my projects.
