Default How do you make Tenons?

On a table mounted router, what method would you use to make tenons?

Using the attached jig will be safer?

Hi Nicolas

Many ,many ways to make them, one easy way is to use the table saw,almost every one has one..no need to buy any bits with this jig.

I should note most don't use the jig the right way, when it's done right all the shoulders come out right on the button.. ( the key is using a 3 blades out of a dado set set the blade height one time and make all the cuts..

HI Nicolas

You don't need a dado set just stack up 2 or 3 blades that will do the trick also
Also the band saw works well for that job, also the Horz.router table works very well also but if you want to use your router table use wider stock and a bottom clean out bit i.e. 5 or 5 1/2" wide stock then rip it to the right size.

I must have 6 or 8 jigs to do that one job, but now you see why I used floating Tetons

The jig below can be used for many jobs

Nicolas,

BJ is giving you good advice as always, but I found this link on another site and thought of your post here.

Just to add to the mix, check this home made jig out.

Thanks for that link. I feel vindicated. That is my jig, too. Works like a charm.
