  • 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.

              He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

              Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

              I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

              You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
