Mortise technique ()

...the mortise discussion is one to be careful with!!

There's a little bit of passive aggressive stuff on the UK forum, but less than most places.

But a discussion of the fastest way to do mortises turned into outright war. It could've been turned into a folk song like the Alice's Restaurant.

There were drill bitters, bench chiselers, side parers, baby killers, father beaters.......and I told them that I like to use only the chisel and kill, kill, kill the wood...and they said "you're our boy".

....and now the earworm of the melody from Alice's Restaurant is stuck in my head for the rest of the day.
