I would never have thought to make a tenon this way, but now, naturally, I have to go try it. No one has mentioned yet that the video says the result is “perfect”, “beautiful” and “smooth”. This sounds like reason enough to try it.

Would it be safer if the operator stood on the left side of the saw and pushed the workpiece away from himself?

Also, Asa says it’s the fastest way he knows. Wouldn’t a router table with the same setup (fence + miter gauge) be just as fast? Wouldn’t that also eliminate the tendency of the tablesaw method to produce a scalloped surface?
