Sometimes it just happens. It is helpful to look at the pieces to try to determine the root cause, and learn something about tenon shape or wood. Can be a hidden defect, especially if its spalted wood. Depending on the shape you have and the wood, a new tenon may be the answer, or a glue block. I’ll use a glue block before I use a recess. I may rechuck a piece for various reasons and recesses are not as reliable for getting back to the exact same position. Recesses are far more difficult to redress for twice turned items also.
