used up a bunch of old plywood cutoffs, purchased some t-track, borrowed the toggle clamps from the drill press table and now have a loose tenon mortise jig that will do vertical pieces, horizontal pieces (complete with removable extension wings, 4th photo) and compund angle pieces. Made several extra top-front pieces (removable/replaceable, photo 6) to use when the vertical front is angled … these top pieces will have to have the angle cut on them to match that of the vertical front. Will use in my upcoming pub table and chairs project. Lots of fun, hope I have made it clear. Enjoy.

I was just looking at shopnote tenoning jig last night.

I will definitely borrow a lot from yours. Probably all of it.

Thanks for posting.

It’s interesting to see different takes on tenon jigs yours works like the Trend jig with the tilting front apron I really like that I built one recently with a fixed front apron but I think I will modify it thanks for sharing

Yeah that’s a good one. What are you making the tenons out of? And how much room do you leave for glue?
