Mortise and Tenon Joinery
The latest thing on my bench is a chair with a few loose legs and stretchers. One stretcher even pulls right out of its socket. How do I tighten the joints?
Is there a handheld method to make tenons in large stock?
The chisels on my hollow-chisel mortiser have dulled. Because the bevel is on the inside, I’m not sure how to sharpen them. Can you offer advice?
I learned my lesson the hard way: Mortises first, tenons second. But now that the mistake has been made, how can I salvage tenons that fit too loosely in a mortise?
How can I bore sockets into tapered segments so the stretchers will be parallel with the upper aprons?
