This jig has an indexing feature that allows you to cut perfect-fitting tenons every time, without having to set up the jig each time you use it.
When it comes to cutting tenons, it’s hard to beat a tenon jig and a table saw. That’s because a tenon jig holds the workpiece vertically while a runner on the jig guides the workpiece straight through the saw. As a result, the saw blade slices through the workpiece to create a tenon with perfectly smooth sides (cheeks). One of the interesting things about this jig is that it allows you to cut three standard tenons — 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2" — without having to fiddle with a lot of different adjustments.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
