I don’t make very many tenons and I have a project that needs some cut now and I thought it might be nice to have a jig for my router table. So I planned this one for cutting with a 1 1/4” max router bit.
It is made out of maple plywood and has 3 positions for clamps and I found that one is sufficient. I added some cherry stops to the table so you can move it from the load position to the cut position without fear of hitting the spinning bit. The handle was an after thought and originally was going to be up high and part of the back board but is seemed better to have it low with pressure on the bottom corner to hold it place while cutting.
I thought I’d have to rough the wood out on the band saw, but it cut good full depth. Maybe bigger ones might need pre-trimming.
