This is a tenon jig I made for my table saw, it’s made from a bit of mdf and a few boards and a strip of sandpaper. It’s a sled with a runner and a screw in a board to register off. I use it with my dado stack to make tenons very quickly and accurately. It works well for single tenons of any size.

But I gotta ask, what’s the purpose of the two holes?

Oh the two holes were practice for me. Recessed screw holes, with a screw in each. Going to use same process to assemble a trestle table base and top I’m working on.

Nice work and great little jig. Should help prevent tearout and make some nice tenons.
