One of my favorite Arts & Crafts details is the through tenon at the top of a table, bookcase, or a chair. When I was considering adding a joinery class to my curriculum at the Barnard Woodworking School, I thought of this joint. I prefer teaching joinery techniques while making a simple project rather than practicing on scrap wood. A small step stool with four through tenons in the same board would be a bit of a challenge and is a common skill needed for complex furniture. It makes a great gift and is handy to have around the house. I have some short pieces of spaulted quartered sycamore Iíve been saving for something special and this is it.
