Mortise and Tenon Joinery
A fundamental joint for furniture-making, the mortise-and-tenon joint has been time-tested. Let us show you how to make precision-fitting joints in a variety of ways including hand tools, power tools, and jigs to make the process easy and repeatable.
The router table works well for mortises up to 1x4" wide. With mortises larger than that, I find I have better control by plunging the bit into the work with a plunge router.
