Default Round tenons

Hi, guys.

Once I made the spindles for the crib for my grand daugther, I wanted to do the tenons at each end of them. Using one of my PC trimers I made the jig shown in the pictures and it was a piece of cake. I started with a 0,25 inches router bit but, after two tenons it was broke. I replaced it for 0,5 inches route bit and made all the required tenons.

Alexis! Once again - you have shown an amazing way of making tenons in a very simple manner! Job well done. This got me to thinking - since everything has a centroid, you could actually even cut round tenons on rectangular boards (such as stretchers) with a properly cut matching pair of holes. If an opening tangent with all four corners is produced in pairs - the workpiece can still be rotated, although the first few wood-to-router bit encounters will be on-off, on-off - eventually it will work quite nicely. The problem with round tenons is rotating, but glue or perpendicular pins eliminate this problem. VERY, VERY COOL! Great photo spread, also!

Another very clever solution Alexis.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Hi Alexis,

thanks a lot for sharing your method! I cut some birches wich are drying now. I want to make a (inside)tree for our cats and try to use round tenons there. For the future I am thinking about testing to make some log-furniture. So your tip comes at the right moment.

Thank you and best regards!

Uwe

Hello, dear fellows.
I have to be honest. I saw something similar in a german magazine but the jig was so elaborate that I decided to make it in a simple way. Two 30mm bores and a piece of 4mm hardboard with several screws. The ¨mobile fence¨ as you can see in the pictures, is a wooden scrap that allows me to have any length tenon.

Thank you all for the comments.
