    an idea for a router based tenoning jig

    this is a sketchup version of the jig i built when i built some tables a while back. i had to cut some tenons on some wide boards, and this was the easiest way for me.

    Dan, care to explain it a little more?

    Just curious

    as its drawn up, its ready for a 3/4" board. what i did was to run the router with a 3/4" bit, and ran it with the flat side of the base against the left side board, about an inch into each long board to register where the cut line will be. i would draw a line on the board to be tennoned, and match the line to the left cut line, and then clamp the whole works down tight. then i would start at the end of the board, and work my way back to the cut line. then flip the board over and repeat this for the other side.

    needless to say, this is just the basic setup, and will need to be adjusted to the width and thickness of the lumber you are using. all i can say is that it worked for me, and i got nice clean cheek cuts.

    Quite handy Dan.
    How did you cut the shoulders or did you only cut the flat sides?

    it was good for the flat sides. once i had those cut, i would cut the narrow sides by hand.
