Smile I'm new to this forum, looking forward to learning more woodworking here.

I've built a few smaller projects, and a baby cradle, but now find myself challenged with a big King-size bed. I need help learning how to cut mortise and tenons for it.

Thanks,
Patrick

Greetings Patrick,

Welcome to The Router Forums! Thank you for joining us.

I haven't cut 'actual' mortise and tenons with a router yet, though I look forward to learning the ropes in that area.

I would most likely mount the router on ski's to cut the mortise. I equate cutting a mortise to cutting a 'slot that does not penetrate the workpiece entirely'. I have cut some slots on a router table, but have come to believe, skis are a much better way to do that.

The tenon portion is very similar to a lot of the rabbet cuts I have made, it's just four of them per tenon. To do those cuts, using a router, I would do it mounted in a table.
