Cutting mortises in the stiles

Use one of the tenons you cut in step 1 as a guide to outlining the mortises on the edges of the stiles. To make the job easier, clamp all the stiles together face to face with their ends aligned. Install a mortising attachment on your drill press and clamp one stile to the fence, centering the mortise outline under the chisel and bit. Make the drilling depth Me inch more than the tenon length; make a cut at each end of the mortise before boring out the waste in between (left). Repeat the procedure to cut the remaining mortises.
