How do you set the depth of plunging down with this type of a router? How do you control how deep you’re going in?

As a newbie to a router and using power tools to make joints I found this very helpful, thanks

James Smith says:

I was taught as a young man to say Sir or Mamm out of respect to someone older or wiser than myself. Well Sir you have shown me something that will aid me moving forward. This joint have been giving me trouble for a while. This was so important of a video. Thank you very much Sir.

David says:

Great video Glen

George Ireton says:

I just want to sincerely thank you for this instruction. Yes there are several more complicated mortise jigs out there, but I am a rookie woodworker with limited resources. I happen to have a very specific application that screams for the use of this approach. Also, your friendly demeanor and easy manner makes it easy to pay attention. You rock my friend!

Brian Faircloth says:

Do you make these to sale? I sure do need one.

Bob Eagle says:

do a strength test on square mortise vs rounded.

Great information Glen I'm going to try this on my door project.

Great Video . Thanks!

Dog Dayz says:

Why do you start cutting the tenon with a climb cut on the router? Why not cut the standard direction which seems safer? Also, you can use a scrap backing board when cutting the tenon to reduce or eliminate the tear out at the end of the cut.

very good video

F Vids says:

I disagree with cutting your tenon narrower it will weaken the joint. Edge to edge is stronger just my opinion.
