leg jig part 2

What was I thinking, it took a lot longer to make the mortises than I thought it would. It took almost a full week of evenings to make all 48 mortises, but they are done. Thankfully the second part of the leg making jig made making the mortises a low stress process. All it really is is a piece of 1/4″ plywood with slots milled into it at specific locations. When a leg is mounted into the bottom half of the jig, I screwed the plywood to it. The template bushing rides in the slots, so to cut the mortises all I had to do was take a pass, lower the bit and repeat until I reached full depth. The process it pretty strait forward, so I’ll let the photos explain the rest.
