    Hi Brice,

    I made several mortises about 1/2″ too deep. Wondering if I should mix up some epoxy and pour it in there to restore proper depth?

    No need to fill in a deep mortise. Just use it as is, but try to limit the next ones to be 1/4″ or less over depth.

    I agree with Jim, no need to fill them.  The beautiful thing is you will never see it after the frame is up.
