Furnishing a Sauna Suite #10: Suction-Fit Tenons

02-10-2021 10:02 PM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

My Technique I’m a hobbyist, not a production shop, so my approach to cutting tenons to achieve a suction-fit might seem tedious. I cut the tenons with the sliding table and tenon jig on my table saw, a band saw and then bevel the edges of the tenons with a file. This technique only works well if your stock is absolutely true, square, and the exact same thickness. Table Saw Work My stock is 13/16” thick and I chose 5/16” mortises. That required a 1/4” d...

Rocking Chair: An Online Course #14: Twin-Blade Joinery

03-23-2016 10:36 PM by HappyHowie | 4 comments »

My instructor for this project suggested that I use spacer blocks to cut the second shoulder for the tenons to fit the mortises needed for this rocking chair. I was about to make those spacers when I received a new issue of Woodcraft Magazine. The article in the Feb/Mar 2016 issue was entitled Twin-Blade Joinery. With this method I would use twin RIP saw blades with disks or shims between the blades. With the right combination of shims I could cut tenons for the following mortise sizes cut ...

Shop Made JIGS #3: Saw Blade Storage and Plywood Sheets

02-09-2016 04:29 PM by HappyHowie | 4 comments »

I have had the need to have a better storage solution for my table saw blades. To a smaller degree I also need to have a similar solution for my circular saw blades. I looked through my Shop Notes and Woodsmith archive for some suggestions. I decided to make a table top bid as well as a wall hanging rack. For this old man it is becoming harder to move around full sheets of 3/4 inch plywood; especially those with core’s of MDF. Therefore, I made a skateboard for moving sheets of pl...

Shop Made JIGS #1: Tenon Cutting JIG using Rip Fence

02-07-2016 08:15 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

While taking an online course, it was suggested that we use spacer blocks to cut the width of the tenons. The instructor gave us a reference to a magazine article that built a JIG across the Biesemeyer table saw rip fence. This is a wide fence. My table saw has a narrow fence; therefore I decided to make my JIG with two cross members over my fence as shown in the embedded image below. Tall Tenon Cutting JIG riding on my table saw’s Rip Fence. (Note: this image is right-side u...

Table saw Tenon Jig storage box

10-27-2012 03:27 PM by Marty Backe | 1 comment »

I’ve had a table saw tenon jig for many years, and it’s spent most of its life under and around the table saw. As such, stuff was usually piled on it, and of course it was always covered with saw dust, gunk, and enough humid air to generate rust. So I finally decided to make a purpose built box to store it in. Due to the awkward nature of the components that make up a tenon jig, there ends up being a lot of unused space in such a box. To take advantage of this wasted space, I a...

Adirondack Chair Class #12: A side lesson - My Tenon Jig

02-26-2012 12:53 AM by Betsy | 2 comments »

Before we actually get into cutting the lap joint itself, let’s talk a little about my tenon jig. This jig is a pretty good addition to any shop. It’s quite easy to make from just a few scraps laying around. For this project you’ll need a tall face, and a board the exact width of your table saw’s fence. Here are some shots of my jig. You’ll need a piece of track, a knob and a holding device to act as your securing device. You can buy the track at Rockler or Woodcraf...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #11: Some days it just doesn't pay...

02-23-2011 07:22 AM by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

I had an extremely frustrating evening. We had 3 hours to work on our projects and I seem to make mistakes every other minute!!! I even poked myself with largeish splinter when the stupid dreaded miserable *^%$#@ rebate plane blew out the corner of the tenon I was trimming to size! Yeah I now realize I should have backed it up, but it and I were fighting all evening, I eventually switched to a rasp (what is the emoticon for frustrated woodworker!) I have to hand it to Ryan though, he of...
