This is a link to a Google 3D SketchUp drawing for a router tenon jig. You will need the SketchUp software to download this drawing and its freely available online. We do not provide support for this software. Not all drawings have the measurements displayed but you can use the measurement tool in SketchUp to easily and accurately determine the dimensions of each lumber part. Most drawings do not have instructions, its assumed you can build it based on the completed drawing provided.
A tablesaw tenon jig like the one shown here is easy to build and easy to use on any saw with a plain, unencumbered rip fence. The jig is designed to ride along the fence, offering sliding movement accurately parallel to blade as well as easy positioning for cutting centered or offset tenons, lap joints and bridle joints.
The router table is one of my most favorite tools in the workshop. A lot of people don not realize what a great job the router table does cutting tenons. Before I made this jig I used to use the standard miter gauge to cut tenons then I saw this simple jig featured by Pat Warner in FineWoodworking magazine.
