This clever router jig is self-centering for perfectly placed mortises. Additionally we demonstrate a loose-tenon joinery technique, a joinery method featuring a piece of wood—the tenon—inserted into matching mortises. Just as strong as a joint made with integral tenons, loose-tenon joinery trumps traditional mortise-and-tenon construction in several ways.
Featured in the May 2013 issue of WOOD.
