I have been cutting tenons by hand the same way for some time now. When I read Robert Wearing’s book, “The Essential Woodworker” I learned of a different method that I wanted to try. Now that I have, I wonder why I have been making it so difficult all this time.
If you haven’t already, you must pick up a copy of The Essential Woodworker, available through Lost Art Press. It is a book no woodworker should be without.Google+ Profile
