Mortise Instructions (Stud Style)

Use a 1/2 inch router bit. Setup your template or stops for a 2 inch width. To avoid tear-out, take off very very little (about 1/16) with your first pass working from left to right. Take only about 1/8 to 3/16 more material per pass and complete the mortise in 4-6 passes. If you are too aggressive--especially on the first pass--it may result in tear-out on the right edge of the mortise.
