Topic tags/keywords: tenon jig table-saw ryobi dick

This is a jig i made to adapt to my Ryobi table saw with the sliding table.
It bolts right to the sliding table.
To adjust the tenon thickness you move the sliding table in, or out from the blade.
Here’s three different views.

Nice work. I am glad to see these fine examples of tenoning jigs, as I am getting ready to create some m/t joints myself. At this point I am trying to pick the most efficient method. Thanks for posting these pictures.

Great creative use of the sliding table Dick.

I like the sturdiness of this a lot Dick but don’t have a sliding table. Do you think it is to heavy or bulky for a runner mounted on the bottom of it for the miter track? I guess I would also need slots or something to move it perpendicular to the saw. Hmmm. Well, thanks for showing it.

Yeah, this is really sturdy looking. I like it. Yesterday when I was cutting down a sheet of plywood I was wishing for a sliding table…

Are those springs between the horizontal support that holds the work piece to the jig? If so, that’s a great idea. I may have to steal that.

Hi Chip.
I modified this from a plan in a book. The plan had a crossfeed base for a regular saw. I’ll check to see if I can find it.

I made this from an old solid core door material.

I have too many reference books. It may take me awhile.

Good Eye Jeff,
Those are springs it makes it self adjustable for thicker stock.

Dick – Great looking jig! I like the strudiness and construction – very useful for accuarcy when cutting tenons.

Dick – Great looking jig! I like the strudiness and construction – very useful for accuarcy when cutting tenons. I have used springs in a similar way. Please keep these posts coming – we have much to learn and share.

I finally remembered the book I got this plan from. It’s listed on Amazon for $7.95

It has a lot of other good stuff. I have the whole set of these books.

Looks good. It is much more heavy duty than the one I made. I like the on board clamp. Mine is much smaller, but the I’m happy with the results. I have to use a clamp to secure the workpiece, however. I keep meaning to attach some type of hold down clamp to it, but haven’t got around to it. Keep em coming.

Those Woodsmith books are a great series! I learn a lot every time I open one.

And … A great modification of the jig they showed! Super work to save time.

Ahh…a BT3 at it’s finest! Ironically, I too have plans on my first M&T project this spring and have a BT3100, so this project is a perfect fit for me. Thanks for the glimpse, I’ll have to get that book…
