Another thing about loose tenon, if you are joining some softer woods you can make the tenon out of something harder like maple or beech. That way you have provided all of the extra strength that you can.

I use loose tenons in cabinet doors in addition to the regular router bits cuts for doors. There is not a lot of end grain holding and I want to give it an extra boost.

I also used loose tenons on the baby cradle that I made because I wanted all of the extra strength to the standard router bit cutting.
