With the aprons foursquare and cut to length, the layout for tenon joinery follows traditional patterns that have never changed in centuries, so we follow these patterns every time because they work so well. From establishing the lengths of the tenons to keeping the shoulder lines perfectly matched, we follow these traditions. But then we shift to introducing the Paul Sellers’ methods for using the router plane to refine the final levels and fit the tenons to their respective mortises. We also use different methods for creating the tenons, from split-cutting to paring, sawing, and bandsawing. We will show you how!
