Mortises Made Easy
Chop the mortise fist, cut the tenon to fit for a clean, tight joint. ☺ - BeachsideHank
Forgot to add the pronoun "I' at the beginning of my comment, otherwise I do sound like a bore. ☺ - BeachsideHank
This looks really good. Are you using a forstner bit? - DIY Hacks and How Tos
Nice write-up. Just yesterday, I chopped a big ole mortise through hard maple. A marking gauge and/or marking knives do a nice job of making a little trench for the chisel to catch, and help leave a crisp edge all the way around. To establish a straight line, I like to use a really wide chisel for the first chops, then switch to a smaller chisel past the first fraction of an inch.Marking knives can also make a nice little trench to help keep a forestner bit from wandering. Not saying one way is better than the other, but I like to hog out the material first, then the first chisel strikes that establish the edges cut a little deeper. - jbrauer
Yes, that works too! I can see pros and cons for both.Now let's get into a fight over pins or tails first on hand-cut dovetails. :P
Yes, that's a forstner bit. It works better with my bit brace, since I don't own an electric drill. I borrowed one to ream out these mortises! :)
Yes, good point. The more you can do in the very beginning, the better!

Tool Tip: How to Sharpen a Chisel
Ungreased did not work for me. :P
I used mozzarella and was okay with the brown-ness of it (I like burnt cheese!). So yeah, maybe I cooked 'em too long anyway. Won't stop me from trying again! :)

Awesome! I will try this. Thank you! :D
Mobile hotspot is also handy!
Thanks! Good job.
Yeah! Got my vote.
Awesome! Well hey, if you find something else that works, do an Instructable about it! There is a vegan contest that's supposed to be coming up in a month or two, could enter it in there! :)
Well done! Great game. Have you considered painting the tiles?
Wow! Just wow! This is fantastic. Well done.
I agree. This would be a very special gift indeed! Well done.
Creative and fun - thanks!
That must be really rewarding to make something with your own clay. Taking "made from scratch" to a new level. :D
Wow, that is really cool. Good job!
Ya learn somethin' new every day. Thank you!
That is beautiful! Thanks for sharing.
Very nice! So the plastic doesn't melt in the oven I take it? Thanks for sharing!
That is awesome. I love these things too.
Wow! Why have I never thought of that? After years and years of enjoying the crusty cheese bits that I peel off of pizzas, I never thought of making crusty cheese bits on purpose. Thank you! :)
Super neat! Nice Instructable.
Very creative! Nice job.
This is very well explained. Good job!
Wow, that's really interesting! I don't have any access to a printer like that. But it's cool!
Any problems with the toy melting or smoking in the oven?
How to make an MCPE server in 5 minutes!
Not disappointed at all. Impressed! :)
Came back in to say thanks!The first (test) batch turned out nice, crunchy and not too spicy. Everyone in the family loved it, goes amazing with grilled things. Got me thinking what else should I try fermenting. :)
Nice! I've heard of this but didn't know how to do it. Thank you!
Great job! And thanks for giving the step-by-step in addition to the video. :)
Woah. That is cool.
Super yummy looking and fun too. Great job!
Ohhhhhhh, how to make a pen with coloured pencils!!!!! It wasn't what I first thought when I clicked on it. Very nice Instructable!
Another fun idea from you. Nice one! :)
One thing I have heard is that you have to make sure it's pure sweetened condensed milk. In southeast Asia (at least where I have been), they add palm oil to it. And for some reason, it messes it up when you try to do this trick. But if it's the real deal, yeah man, dulce de leche!!! Love it.
