Cope and Stick

Start forming the tenons

Mount a dado blade on your tablesaw, and set it to cut a centered tenon 1/4" thick on the rails, as shown. Support the workpiece with an auxiliary fence on your miter gauge. Run a test piece through first to make sure it fits snugly into the grooves made in the first step. Cut the tenons 3/8" long, just to get some of the waste out of the way. You'll finish cutting them to length on the router table.
