How To Cut A Mortise By Drilling And Chiseling

How To Cut A Mortise With The Drill Press

Mortising in the drill press with a simple wood drill bit. In this woodworking video I use the drill press to cut a mortise to make a through mortise and tenon joint. I make a round corners mortise, and then I use a chisel to get a rectangular mortise so I can fit the tenon inside it. So we can use a drill press as a mortiser machine and we don’t need a hollow chisel mortiser or a chain mortiser. But both a hollow chisel mortiser and a chain mortiser are craftsman tools that would do a better job.
