About Mortise Machines
Beautiful pieces of wooden furniture are like works of art, and some carpenters uses devices, like a mortise machine, to help with their creations. The device is available on eBay, and makes holes of different shapes in pieces of wood. While there are many types of drill that can make round holes, the mortise machine can cut square or rectangular versions used for mortise and tenon joints. While these joints are not as elegant as dovetail or rabbet joints, they are sturdy and reliable. They are one of the strongest ways to join two pieces of wood together, typically at a right angle. Without a mortise tenon jig, many carpenters have to go through the process of using a standard drill to cut a round hole and then make it square with a hammer and chisel. This means that a machine with a mortise gauge saves time, as well as offering greater accuracy. If you are looking for a way to create gorgeous wooden furniture, then look no further than mortising tools.
