@renners…Yes loose tenons mostly, but it will do stand. tenon just have to square-up mortise. I make my own tenon stock, the bit I use most is a 3/8” spiral up-cut with a 3/8” shaft and a 3/8” to 1/2”collet reducer, so I have more length if needed without changing the size of the mortise. I have no issues with end grain or species of wood, (doing a boat-load of Hrd Maple now). I use a DeWalt 618 2 1/4hp VSpeed, and Whiteside bits only, it makes a big difference using sufficent power and the same size collet as the bit. I take a 1/4” at a time slotting. My largest spiral I’ve used is 1/2”, as it’s the largest bullnose bit I have to make the tenon stock. Hit me up if ya need any more info pal, ok. no prob.
