The idea of this tenon jig isn’t new for the LJ community. But everything old is new again. I wanted to built this jig everv since I saw it some time ago. I like it and decided to sharing. This jig makes possible for you both cheeks without having to remove the piece from jig an flip around. If you must to make many tenons this jig will be right. I built jig out 3/4” laminated plywood, beech for the miter sliding rail, few long nuts, wing nuts and threaded rods, pair springs.

That rascal looks really well made. How is to set up?

Thanks. The detail description of this tenon jig is in ShopNotes #6.For the making good tenons need to make miter sliding rail with minimum permissible clearance.

Great looking jig; and, I’ll bet it works as well if not better than the one sold by the tool manufacturers.

Nice jig Edward. I like the idea for the vice with two wing nuts ; it is simple but very efficient.
