I’m working on building a small end table. I milled up all my wood for the apron using a jointer to joint an edge and a face, my table saw for the opposite edge, and a planer for the opposite face.
But after I cut tenons, I discovered that some of my tenons were slightly undersized. I determined that this is because that piece of wood had somehow been planed thinner that the other 2 pieces. After looking more closely I also found that the board is also slightly wedge shaped, with one end of the board being a thick 32nd over the other end.
I milled all the boards at the same time through each step of the process.
How did this happen?
Also, how can I make the undersized tenons on that piece fit the 1/4 inch mortises? I was considering glueing a small shim on, and sanding it to a slip fit.
