Chiseling the double mortises for the bottom drawer rail

Clamp a leg inside-face up to a work surface. Then, starting at one end of the double mortise outline, hold a mortising chisel square to the inside face of the leg and strike the handle with a wooden mallet (left). Use a chisel the same width as the mortises and be sure that the beveled side is facing the waste. Continue making cuts at intervals of about V& inch until you reach the other end of the outline. Use the chisel to lever out the waste to the required depth (above). Chop out the remaining double mortises the same way. Test-fit the joints and widen or deepen the mortises with the chisel, as required.
