You might use table saw to make the tenon?
Thank you for posting :)

Thank you for the comments.
Well it does not take a lot of time at all, the trick is to know where to start.
Sorry Jaeyoel Park, did not get your question/suggestion.

for the tenon i was thinking a ts set up to cut a stopped cove, and for the mortise maybe a drill/jig saw/chisel? Seems like it would be pretty straight forward to me, and not much more work involved if ur doing a high $$ piece, especially for the added creativity in a design feature. For me this is one of those “hey how come i didn’t think of that earlier?” wonderful idea, i’ll be watching for updates on this…

I would use a router for the mortise since a template is easily made after the tenons are cut.

doh! there ya go rob, showing how my laziness-in-thought translates into less efficient working methods…i don’t really like my router situation right now though, so perhaps this is why I automatically thought how II would do it. always love the input i get from this site though, keeps you thinking…

Very cool idea. Would you mind if I incorporated this joint into boxmaking? I think I’d like to try that sometime.

Thanks for posting it.

Thank you very much everyone.

Well I am not using table saw, for 2 reasons:
1st – I think it will leave to large gap,
2nd – I do n ot have it hehe.

The tools I used: straight chisel, gouge, japanese hand saw with universal tith, thin one but with a back support, malet and the most important of all – metal square, made in USSR hehe, with 0.006 precision.
To cut mortise no tamplate has been used. Why? In my opinion it is very difficult to make precisely the same tennons, so every mortise has been cut through individually with a hand router and a shisel.

It is not the work that I can spend a lot of time on and it does not need to be 100% spot on for me.
It just need it to be done fast and easy, with an exeprional quality so I can use it imideatelly for my carving, guilding and other classes.
