Making Mortises

The mortises for the vertical dividers are cut and cleaned up. I used a palm router with up-cutting spiral bit. I also knifed all cross grain to prevent tear out and also to provide an edge to place a chisel when cleaning up. Since all of the mortises were laid out individually I'm sure there are slight differences in widths (like a few thousandths), but I'll account for that when cutting the corresponding tenons.
