If you go to the NYW website, the featured project is a drop leaf
table which requires some M&T joints.
Here is Norm with an early contractor's saw making cheek cuts for the
tenons using ONLY the fence.
This was obviously long before Delta coughed up a tenoning jig for the
show and Norm's message of safety.
BTW, grew up with a painted drop leaf table as a kitchen table long
before plastic laminate existed.
Our table was laminated with linoleum.
Need, the mother of invention.
