Tenon joints are one of the strongest woodworking joints. They fit into a mortise, and make a very tight joint. There are many ways to cut a tenon. The most common way is to use a tenon jig on a table saw. I want a easy jig that will slide on my table saws fence. I don’t want something to complicated, just something that will get the job done. If anyone has any ideas. Please leave a comment below.

Doesn’t use the fence, but is simple and quick to make.

I personallly like to hand cut my tenons and trim with a shoulder plane. I think i can cut 4 tenons in the time it takes me to put on the dado blade. I enjoy the silence too.

I made a 90 out of plywood that has two slots. Then that attaches to my cross cut sled and can adjust in and out.
PM me if you interested and I’ll grab a picture when I’m home
