//How to Make a Wedged Mortise & Tenon Joint

In this video Will Myers shows how to cut, chop, and wedge a very strong mortise & tenon joint while building the historical Moravian Workbench at Roy Underhill’s Woodwright’s School. This free tutorial is an excerpt of the 2-disc DVD “Building the Portable Moravian Workbench with Will Myers” (buy it here).

This particular wedged tenon is part of the beautiful white oak leg vice. The DVD shows how beginners can build this collapsible workbench with hand tools.
