A George Nakashima-inspired Conoid chair, made from Bubinga. We used the Mortise Pal jig to cut 1/2" dowel holes in the top of the legs and underside of the crest rail to accept a 1/2" hardwood dowel.

My daughter and husband requested a baby crib built from walnut for their first child. I knew that the Mortise Pal would be the perfect tool and invaluable in making all the mortises perfect and quick. The crib is made of walnut and each of the slat ends was mortised as well as the rails. We made our own tenons from left over walnut. The Mortise Pal allowed us to build the crib to my daughter's preferences and she continues to get rave reviews from everyone who sees it..

I used the Mortise Pal to mortise the hand carved cabriole legs for a coffee table for my mother. The table is made of ash. The top is a marble slab my mom & dad had cut in Turkey when he was stationed in Germany many years ago. The marble has been carted around for years. My brother in Washington) and I decided to make her a base. I had carved the legs and sent them to my brother to mortise and finish the base. He was trying to mortise with a drill press and chisel, but having a great deal of difficulty. He finally sent them back, and hoped I could fix them. I plugged the holes, then used the Mortise Pal to do the mortises. As you can see, everything fits nice and tight (no glue yet!). In order to clear the knee of the legs, I stuck a little spacer block between the clamp and the leg, which you can see in one of the pictures. The MP worked great! No tinkering with settings, etc, just clamp and rout. I love this thing!
