Table Saw Tenon Jig — 2 Comments

  1. I am really curious about this. I have a nice jig it takes a while and is a pain to set up. I finally quit using it and started using sled to cut the four shoulders, nibble away most of the remaining, then a chisel and router plane to clean up. I am sure there are several other methods. I would appreciate your thoughts on the subject.

    • If you’re nibbling away from both sides, any variation in thickness of the piece will show up in the dimensions of the tenon. The idea of the jig shown here is that you can set up the cut for each cheek to make the tenon the correct size, or at least so close any trimming is minimal.
