Advanced Woodworking Section

I think the topic was intended for discussion on more technically advanced topics, not an area for woodworkers that are more advanced. It's not meant to leave any one out or announce an arrival at a skill set.

It's taken a lot of experimentation to get those to fit right, lots of trial and error handwork. Anyone else tackle this kind of thing with more luck? I can post pics if needed. Here's the mortise...
