TWIN / DOUBLE MORTISE AND TENON JOINTS

V. Ryan 2002 - 2008

 

THE DOUBLE MORTISE AND TENON

 

This joint is used for rails for strengthening tables and chairs. As usual, wood working adhesive such as PVA or cascamite is used to make the joint permanent

TWIN MORTISE AND TENON

This is a very strong mortise and tenon because the two tenons give a greater gluing area than a single tenon. It is used where great strength is required at a joint.
