Coffee Table Rails

Through Tenons are a new joint for me. I have made a total of two and now I’m looking ahead to making 8 more. Using a saw to cut the tenons  I stayed away from the marks and used a router plane to close in on the correct thickness.



20130817-201048.jpgUsing my router plane was very relaxing and provided a lot of control as I trimmed the Tenons. I managed to get the first four Tenons looking fairly good and it is clear that as my confidence grows I can cut closer to the lines. I’ll shape the exposed mortises tomorrow and then on to the under shelf.

    I love the through tennon, You can take one look and see the quality of the piece. I did a pine end table a few months back as a hand cut through tenon intoduction but they didnt turn out as nice as your first ones. Great work.
