Bold joinery for casework
Make your cabinets stand out with clean, attractive through-tenons
Through-tenons can be an attractive alternative to dovetails when building cases and boxes. Using two router jigs, Brian Hubel makes multiple through-tenons and mortises accurately without a lot of tedious setup. A stub tenon and shallow dado add strength and rigidity to the joint, while hiding squeeze-out. Hubel often adds splines for decorative effect.
