Marking the edges of the tenons

Once all the tenon cheeks have been cut, mark the tenons' edges, using their post mortises as a guide. Outline single tenons on the end rails and footboard; the headboard, shown at right, has two tenons. Set the post on a work surface with its mortises facing up and position the mating piece on top, aligning the end of the board with the mortises. Then line up the blade of a combination square with one end of a mortise and, holding the handle of the square against the end of the tenon and the tip of the blade against the shoulder, mark the tenon edge across the cheek with a pencil. Outline the remaining tenon edges the same way (right), marking the waste with Xs as you go.
