Types Of Tenons

Several variations are possible. 142:6 is used only in the cheapest work for thin slats into thicker frameworks, such as play-pens, garden seats, etc., and the depth of the mortises must be positive as there are no shoulders on the rails to limit the depth of entry. Figure 142:7 is better as it has one cut shoulder and allows the top of the rail to be rounded over, if necessary, while 142:8 is better still as it gives a positive square location. Figure 142:9 is edge shouldered on one or both sides if the thickness allows, but no rounding of the rail is possible unless the mortises have round ends also. Figure 142:10 is the orthodox method where the rail lines up with the face of the legs or stile and the tenon must be offset.
