Long time lurker, first time poster.
I’m making some cabinet doors on my tablesaw. I used feather boards to cut the center dado on all stiles and rails, then used my dado blades and miter fence to make the tenons on the ends of the rails. My setups never changed once I started cutting.
Still, I somehow ended up with the whole range of joints. Some were too tight, some were too loose and some were just right.
My main issue is the loose joints. Since my tenons are all 3/4” from the shoulder to the end (would that be 3/4” wide or long?), I figured I’d get some edge banding veneer to widen the tenon and sand down to fit. However, most readily available (and cheap) edge veneer comes pre-glued with some kind of heat activated glue on the back. Would using the heat activated glue on the tenon hold it tight enough once I glue it into the stile with some Titebond 3?
