Wedged tenon joints

Today I am working on one of my 6' Cod Rib Settees that will be shipped to Ireland.  Below is a video that illustrates the wedged tenon joint that makes my Windsor chairs and benches strong and long lasting.  When done right, this joint will stay tight even through seasonal changes.

Getting Started

I am starting this blog to hopefully replace my What's New? page on my website.  Today is hopefully one of last of the really cold days (below 10 degress F) of the winter.  At the moment, I am working on a 6' settee and am still working on the design for an Irish wake table.  This is a narrow table with two wide leaves. Images to follow.
