I was wondering if anyone out there knows if there is a tutorial out there on the proper way of doing wedge tenons. Or if someone can explain the best way to do these? How big do the tenons need to be? What is the grain direction that one should follow? What is the depth of the cut into the tenon? What is the proper way to shave the through part of the tenon + wedge flat to the surface without snaging up the wedge? What is the best angle for the wedge? What is the kerf size that works?

Well as you can see I have been thinking about this for a while and I tried a couple of experiments but I would like to know what is the proper way.

By the way is this a very advanced technique or is it something that people just dont like doing? Even if you have never done one, I would like to know your thoughts on this last question.

thanks

Thanks much for the tip. This is definitely a good start for me. I will look into getting that back issue.

Have your say...
