X-Motion Portable Mortiser

Post by Suso » Wed Mar 24, 2021 5:13 pm

Here's my latest project, my homemade version of a portable mortiser, which will allow me to make tenon mortise joints in an easier and more convenient way using a handheld router. As you can see in this 3D model, the design will let me move the router along two axis using both hands to make the mortises.

I've finished the adjustable height fence and the drive handle to enable the X-axis movement of the portable mortiser.

I've finished machining and putting together these two pieces that will allow me to move the portable mortiser from left to right in order to cut the mortises!

Here's a small video where I demonstrate how I built my portable mortiser's plunge system. It looks like it's working well!

One more video where I show you how I built the portable mortiser's depth stop. It looks like it's working well!

Detailed pictures of the stool I made a few days ago with my new portable mortiser. I've used ash wood and red stained MDF for the seat. I think this kind of MDF is a highly versatile material!
