I am building an arts and crafts style door of old DF. The top and middle rail are 7 inches wide. Should the tenon on these rails be a single with a height of about 5 1/2 inches (as I currently have them cut!) or should I have two smaller tenons in that 5 1/2 inch space supported with a continuous one inch deep stub tenon along the edge? Basically is 5 1/2 inches too much for a single tenon on a 7 inch rail? Thanks in advance. Rich Collins
