I wanted to get some opinions on something I’ve been contemplating.
I enjoy turning furniture parts on the lathe and I typically join these with either a wedge through tenon or with a pegged tenon.
I’m wondering other’s thoughts on whether a wedged tenon really needs glue anywhere but the wedge. Lets say concerning a 1” thick by 2” long tenon on a bench leg. I can typically get about 1/4”+ of a wedge in there, and glued I don’t think its going anywhere for a while. I started questioning this after reading the glue optional comment by Curtis Bunchanan in the latest issue. I realize its a complete different set of circumstances, but it got me thinking how I can eliminate part if the glue process.
Thanks for lookin 🙂
