in the process of learning the mortise and tenon joint and have a question…..does the length of a table apron need to have the tenon length added to the final cut length? sorry for the probably stupid question but my gut tells me yes but i want to ask the wizards on the site if i am correct. thanks for the help

Yes, but if you pull a bonehead move and cut the apron short, you can resort to loose tenons, either shop-made or Domino. I think we’ve all made that mistake once.
