Mortise and Tenon Illustration by James Provost M&T GeometryThere are a wide variety of M&T joints, with the most common being the 'stopped' (blind) joint.Other frequently used joints include the through, wedged, pinned, haunched, double (twin) and offset (barefaced).
All of these joints share two common features: a 'mortise', which is simply a square or rectangular recess into which a tongue, the 'tenon', is inserted.The typical configuration is that the mortise is cut on a stile, and the tenon on a rail.
The tenon itself is typically smaller in width and thickness than the rail on which it is cut.Once you know how to make a stopped mortise and tenon joint, you can apply the principles to any kind of M&T joint.
There are two important things to consider when cutting a stopped M&T joint.You want sufficient gluing surfaces so that the joint won't fail, and you want the walls of the mortise thick enough so that they are structurally sound.
If the mortise is too wide there will be less strength provided by the narrow side walls.When both the mortise and tenon pieces are the same size I make the mortise about 1/3 the stile width.For...
