This is a very basic built tenon jig that I put together last night while in the middle of another project. This is one of those things that I’ve really needed for a long time but kept putting off. It was only about a 30 minute project, and I’m very happy I finally made the time for it!

It’s made out of scrap plywood and a spare 1’ length of t-track I had laying around. Two hold down clamps from my drill press table finish it off.

Thanks for the feedback! I had dreams of a heavy duty tenon jig, but realized this would get the job done and was free!

I like this a lot more than what I use at work. We have a prewar swing tenon saw that cuts both sides at the same time. Last year my boss was using it and a bolt came loose, flew across the room and buried itself in the wall. This looks much safer.

I’m new to woodworking but having problems trying to visualize how that works?
