Joinery Bench Top: Cutting Tenons With a Festool TS 75
« on: September 28, 2013, 01:25 AM »
I thought I would share my first video with the FOG. I put a blog post on Weekend Warrior Woodworking Magazine but thought I would also post the video here.

I needed to cut the tenon in the top of the joinery bench that the aprons for the side will attach too. I wanted to try something different, the top was too wide for the table saw and I have not made a dado sled yet. I decided to use the TS 75 and MFT/3 to cut the tenon and used Lie-Nielsen Rabbet plane to clean up the tenons. I could have just used a router along with a guide rail or edge guide but I really like to experiment with cutting joinery using different methods. I also decided that I wanted to try another experiment that is not related to woodworking in the video (you will see the disclaimer at the beginning of the video). When it was all said and done I was very pleased with how the tenon turned out and now have another method of work that I can use in the future. I guess the video was also and experiment too!
