Rout precise mortises with this self-centering jig. The rotating circles let you rout on-the-mark mortises every time that are perfect for slip mortise-and-tenon joinery.

This shopmade jig lets you rout mortise easily rout end mortises. Then you can also rout the mating mortises horizontally.

David Lehman designed this jig when he was considering a set of bedroom furniture that needed more than 50 mortise and tenon joints. So, he created this jig to simplify the job.
