Cope and Stick
Finish the tenons
Go back to the router table and re-install your dovetail bit. Adjust the height of the bit to match the bottom surface of the tenon.
Now mark 1/2" from the end of one tenon to establish the completed length of the tenon. Set the router table fence so that the point of the dovetail bit hits the mark, as shown. Rout the ends of the rails with this setup, finishing the top and bottom shoulder of each tenon.
