LostArtPress on InstagramWedge the tenons. Note how the wedges are perpendicular to the grain of the benchtop. This is the typical arrangement when building furniture. For some large-scale work with square tenons, I prefer to orient my wedges diagonally across the tenon. This spreads out the tenon against all four walls of the mortise. The disadvantage to this approach is that there’s a chance of splitting the benchtop. In large-scale work, however, this is a minimal risk. — from “Ingenious Mechanicks” by Christopher Schwarz #Ingenious_MechanicksVisited @sarah_marriage at @aworkshopofourown in Baltimore.
