« Part 14: Joinery Bench Build: Lamination, Lamination Lamination! Part 15 of Weekend Warrior Woodworking Magazine series Part 16: Giveaway Announcement: Win a 1 Year Wood Whisperer Guild Membership! »

I needed to cut the tenon in the top of the joinery bench that the aprons for the side will attach too. I wanted to try something different, the top was too wide for the table saw and I have not made a dado sled yet. I decided to use the TS 75 and MFT/3 to cut the tenon and used Lie-Nielsen Rabbet plane to clean up the tenons. I could have just used a router along with a guide rail or edge guide but I really like to experiment with cutting joinery using different methods. I also decided that I wanted to try another experiment that is not related to woodworking in the video (you will see the disclaimer at the beginning of the video). When it was all said and done I was very pleased with how the tenon turned out and now have another method of work that I can use in the future. I guess the video was also and experiment too!
