Mitered Tenon Joint Plans

The mitered tenon allows for longer tenons in a furniture leg by allowing adjacent tenons to occupy the same L-shaped mortise. This is useful in narrow legs, because longer tenons have more strength. The joint is made by cutting two normal blind tenons, and then mitering the ends of the tenons so they don’t block each other.

Another joint that accomplishes the same task is the finger jointed paired tenons.
