Make a simple jig that will place the Mortice where ever you want it to be

The way to cut mortices off center is to add temporary stock to the side that the mortice will be close to. Adding an inch to one side of a 2 inch Leg would offset by 1/2" toward the out side of the 2" leg. Further shimming on one side of the leg will result in 1/2 the thickness of the shim toward the outside of the leg.

Hope this helps.. Woodnut65
