Multipurpose Layout Tool

I like to think of a craft knife as an all-in-one cutting tool. That’s because there are so many types of interchangeable blades available (photo at below).

You can use it with a standard blade as a marking knife or switch to a thicker blade for carving and cleaning out the waste of a hinge mortise. And like a utility knife, the blades can be thrown out when they get dull. Just keep in mind that the blades are beveled on both faces.
The knife handles and blades can be purchased individually or in a set (as shown). You can find them at most craft and hobby stores.

Top Mortise Tips

An easy way to cut mortises is by drilling a series of overlapping holes at the drill press. Then you can use a chisel to remove the ridges on the sides and ends.
The drawings below show how to guide the chisel to pare away the waste. This technique leaves smooth walls for a better-fitting mortise and a flat glue surface.
I start with a wide chisel on the sides. A wide blade helps keep the surface smooth, with no “steps” between cuts. Take thin shavings, starting at the tips of the ridges and move back until the wall of the mortise is smooth. By controlling the downward pressure with your dominant hand and using your opposite hand to direct the blade, you’ll quickly get a feel for it. Pivoting the chisel allows you to make fine paring cuts for a smooth wall.
With the sides cleaned up, switch to a chisel that matches the width of the mortise to square the ends.
