I saw the video and the comments posted. All the Nay sayers on the safety side of things are always going to scream safety. If it’s new and different most folks are to stuck in their ways to accept it so they use the safety cop out.
I see the method to be perfectly safe as long as the operator is: trained, intellegent, and uses common sence. No one should use a tool in a manner they are not comfortable with. So if a person isn’t comfortable with this method then they simply have alternate ways to accomplish the same task.

I think if you guys arn’t afraid of the “safety Police” screaming, you should publish this method. Just cavet it that it’s an advanced technique that should only be performed by skilled and confident craftsman.

I honestly wish I saw the method 2 weeks earlier. I just cut 40 tenons with a dado blade and multiple passes. I might have tried this method instead if I had seen it before. Next project that needs tenons I am going to
try it out.
Oh if you like our responce and you publish it do we get a free subscription? LOL…
