Cutting the mortises in the stiles

Use the tenoning jig to saw the mortises in the door stiles. Outline the mortises on the ends of the stiles, using a completed tenon as a guide. Then clamp one of the stiles to the jig, reset the blade height to the tenon length, and position the fence to align one of the cutting marks with the blade. Slide the jig along the fence to cut one side of the mortise, then turn the stile around to cut the other side (left). Reposition the fence and make as many passes as necessary to clear out the waste between the kerfs. Repeat the cuts at the other end of the stile and at both ends of the remaining stiles.
