Topic tags/keywords: finishing joining

I’m building out the interior pieces of a jewelry box first and then will make the actual carcass soon. This is being done for space, to allow for the same lacquer finish but slightly different stains, and to ensure everything sits the way I want them to before glue-ups. One of the pieces will be attached to the carcass with a mortise and tenon joint. Should I plan the mortise to be wide enough to fit a lacquer finished tenon or should the tenon remain unfinished?

Other projects I have done with mortise and tenon joints were finished after they were actually put together.

+1. Mask off the tenon when you lacquer

Or make a pinned tenon, with a wedge shaped pin.
