Two New Uses for Loose Tenon Joinery – Part 1

06-12-2011 06:45 PM by Randy Price | 5 comments »

The loose tenon is often used as a substitute for the mortise and tenon because in comparison it is quick and easy to make and is nearly if not as strong. The loose tenon can replace other joints as well and in the next two posts I will give examples of two new uses of the loose tenon joint. New Use #1 – Substitution for a Cope and Stick Joint In the following video I describe how a rather complicated cope and stick joint used in the construction of the Frank Lloyd Wright Frances ...

Figured Maple and Walnut Coffee Table #3: Second Weekend part two

10-18-2010 12:49 AM by bohnsai | 1 comment »

I left off with the top being glued to some MDF risers. This morning I finish sanded it and put on two coats of lacquer. I will oil the walnut but I didn’t want to Maple any darker so I figured I’d lacquer it so when it’s all built up, the oil wont get into the maple top. Step 5: Finishing the Shelf I ripped the walnut border to length and laid it out to get an idea where to cut the biscuits. The center piece was a very clear piece of face grained walnut, so when I wen...

router jigging: edge guide and mortise

08-25-2009 02:26 PM by AaronK | 5 comments »

The router is by far the most accurate tool in my shop, much more so than my table saw, so that how i’ve been leaning. anyway, I looked at some jigs, most significantly the ones one these pages:http://www.woodsmith.com/issues/147/videos/setting-up-and-using-the-router-jig/http://thecraftsmanspath...

Copper Patina Garden Gate #5: Mortise Magic

06-08-2009 07:30 PM by newTim | 0 comments »

The gate frame is joined with mortise and loose tennons, although there’s nothing loose about them. Cutting matching mortises is a two-step process. First is cutting the mortises to length (4 1/2”, bottom, 2 1/2” top), width (3/4”), and initial depth (about 1 1/4”) using the Mortise Pal jig. The second step is adding more depth to the mortises (2 1/4”). The largest mortise using this jig is 1/2” x 2 1/2” x about 1 1/4” deep. To prod...

Shop done. Let's build something #2: Cabinet framed

03-08-2009 01:55 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 2 comments »

Ok, My first cabinet. I decided on loose tenon joinery. I discovered a site for a good jig that was easy to make and it seems to work. I’ve got all my oak jointed/cut/and planed. Today I made my mortises with router and jig and glued up the front face of the cabinet. This cabinet will be a corner cabinet 42” tall and about 25 wide on the face. it will have two ogee raised panel doors. Next up will be the back of the cabinet. Not too much of an issue as it won’t show. I’...
