I am new to the forum and I have a question on making my mortise and tenons.
I am building a kitchen table out of cherry and I am going to be using mortise and tenon joinery for the first time. The thickness of my apron will be 7/8. I am planning on making the tenon width 3/8 of an inch. Is that acceptable for this thickness. Also on the short sides of the tenon, how wide should I make the cheeks? I think I am using the right lingo. I am talking about the tops and bottoms of the boards.
Thanks in Advance for any and all Info,
