Tenon joints are one of the oldest woodworking standbys; they’re sturdy and relatively simple to create.  That doesn’t stop Toolmongers from attempting cleaner and more accurate joints, however.  A tenoning jig is designed to give the woodworker a repeatable joint-making edge. 

The jig is designed to cut straight, angled, or mitered tenons on your table saw by sliding in the guide track and holding the wood in adjustable positions to make the required cuts.  Oversized feed handles provide positive operating control while the large crank handle secures stock up to 3-1/4″.

It seems like a solid base that is quite easiliy adjustable. While it could be overkill if your plans include one or two joints, 50 might be better served with the jig.

Street pricing starts at $45.

  1. $59 (on sale) seems like a great deal for that Woodcraft jig, I might have to pick one up.

    I have the Delta version of this (probably made in the same factory with different paint). It’s a great tool for making quick panel doors (small ones). I mortise and tenon the ends, groove the lengths and presto, flat panel doors on your tablesaw. Since I do the tenons like big box joints, you can use the tenoning jig for all of the cuts.

    Not a bad deal, but I really prefer router joining–I am still really intimidated by my table saw. Not that a router is particularly safer, but I am certainly more comfortable jigging up the router and using a pattern bit.

    Seems a lot safer than the jig I cobbled together to do that white oak bench set I did last fall.
