Simple tenon jig for mission doors etc...


I made this a couple weeks ago. Works very well to both make the vertical cut and the cheek cut.

No measurement required. Make the dado cuts first, then line up the kerf shown in the sled. Makes very repeatable cuts quickly, and very minimal tear out.

Took maybe an hour to make, not including glue dry times. Made from scraps, and 10 dollars or so for the knobs which thread into brass inserts in the base sled.

Also easily adjust for when the dado is not dead centered in the material.

I have a router table, and have a tongue and groove set, but I dont think its a good one. Cant seem to get a good fit up with it.

Im not sure what you mean by Jimmy Hotdogs. Is that some type of inside joke?

7No joke I ate these in the early 70's I'd walk up there with my mom to buy them as we lived down the street...

Last time me and my brother went to Chicago it was the first thing we did before seeing relatives...

Cant say Ive ever been there. Chicago is a big place with hundreds of mom and pop hot dog joints. All most all of them are good.

I dont live in the city, Im about 30 miles west. But I do work down there alot, but not sure Ive ever been there.

Jimmys sold depression dogs in hard times. Long history and compared around the world..once you've eat thee you know you've eat the best....

When I was a kid there they brought pizza in a panel truck... such good times

Somethings stick with you the rest of your life. Food is one of them for me...

My tenon jig is taller ......

Not to steal your thunder here, but you may find this modifcation useful, I donno? I like more vertical support on a tenon jig. I did have an old Craftsman tenon jig, but it just wasn't user friendly, so typically, I was up for modifying it.


I did use the H-F toggle clamps to secure the workpiece against the vertical fence, a great timesaver and very accurate.

The first version was over complicated, so I modified my modification!
:surprise2. See post number 5:

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I thought about making it taller like you did, but mine stores easily, and what I like most about mine is that I dont use the table saw fence. Which in my case would be hard to quickly move from one measurement to the next. Its a good fence, but when not locked down has a bunch of wiggle on the far side of the table.
