Finger Jointed Paired Tenons Plans

finger jointed tenon plans

The finger jointed paired tenon is a method of having a longer tenon in a narrow leg. The two adjacent tenons share an L-shaped mortise, by having the two mortises intersect. This joint is very similar to the mitered tenon joint, but the interlocking of the pieces gives this joint more mechanical strength, although some would argue less glue surface.
