  • Tenon Cutters

    I was curious if anyone in the fourm owns or has used a tenon cutter for making log furniture. I have seen some tenon attachments that go on 1/2 and 3/4 drills, common sense tells me that those things could rip your arms off at the sockets but I am interested in a easy and quicker method for cutting tenons and I' m not sure if this is the answer.

    I have looked throughout the net and have seen no reviews other than the hype manufacturers place on their products, anyone input from real people would be appreciated.

    Tenon cutters I have seen were used with a traditional woodworker's bit and brace. I don't know about using with a power drill.

    A Traditional woodworking forum where I am sure you can get an answer to your question can be found at the Fine WoodWorking magazine site, I think the linkage on Taunton Press' home page is called the "Knot discussion" under the woodworking column. try this link: http://www.taunton.com/finewoodworki...unityHome.aspx
    or

    I do recommend you bring your "thick skin" if you post there. Woodworking forums are not alway as polite as this site.

      I appreciate the info and the heads up on the tone of that link. I suppose it makes one appreciate the level of civility we practice here.

        GB Phil is right......Interesting place "over there"...... SawmillCreekdotorg is a much more civil place.

        I would think that a drill mounted tenon cutter would work just fine on spruce/pine or other soft woods....especially if it is kept sharp.

          Steve, here's an alternative from Rockler tools. It's table mounted and doesn't use a drill.

            Another excellent link, thanks Mike.

            I beleive I had seen or read about that when I was still overseas and my only concern is the limited diameter which that can accept. Although I have been wanting projects for my new router table....I really hate decisions, especially when they are expensive.

              I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

              I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

              First off how thick is the board you cut?
              When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
              that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
              for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

              I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

              Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

              Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...
