Cutting mortises in soft woods

Cutting mortises
Cutting mortises in very hard woods is known to be difficult, but it is not exactly easy in the case of very soft woods either. The cutting endeavor may not require much effort and time, but one has to be careful not to tear fibers away during the cutting action. There is also more risk of making unwanted dents in the wood with the chisel during the action.
