Mortise and Tenon joints plansFree Mortise and Tenon joints plans - A mortise and tenon joint consists, in simple terms, of a tongue, (the tenon) that slots into a hole (the mortise) cut in the mating piece of timber. The strength of the joint makes it ideal for use in framing and general furniture work. For a really strong joint the tenon must be a tight fit into the mortise, so care must be taken when cutting both parts of the joint. For maximum strength, the tenon width should never be more than one third the width of the timber in which it is cut. There are several kinds of mortise and tenon joints. They all serve much the same purpose; but some are stronger, while others conceal the joint construction.
