This unique tenon stock is specially designed for our Beadlock® Loose Tenon Joinery System. The Beadlock® joinery system allows you to create joints with mortise and tenon strength without the need for large, expensive machinery. The flutes on the stock increase the amount of precious glue surface and also prevent the joint from racking. And now you can save time by buying Beadlock® tenon stock in precut lengths of 1-1/2", 2", 2-1/2". For those who prefer to cut their own, we still have one-foot lengths as well.


Features:
  • Stock is specially designed for our Beadlock® Loose Tenon Joinery System (sold separately)
  • Flutes on the stock increase the amount of glue surface
  • Save time by buying Beadlock® tenon stock in precut lengths of 1-1/2", 2", 2-1/2"
  • Made from domestic birch and is untreated

    An affordable solution compared to the Festool Domino. Takes a little getting used to, but it's a lot faster than some other methods.

    Beadlock Tenon stock
    Two years ago I purchased the Bead-Lock Tenon Jig to make storm windows for a friend. I also bought the router bit to make my own tenon stock. I have used the jig and tenon stock to make various furniture pieces with great success. Easier and faster than cutting traditional mortises and tenons. I highly recommend the jig and tenon stock.

    easy to use and creates a great joint. Requires attention to the proper lineup for marking of attaching pieces, Be sure to use a sharp pencil or knife to mark off your alignment marks

    How could you go wrong?
    Their made to fit the holes. I even cut them down with my band saw to make them less wide, and drill the holes accordingly when i don't have room for a whole one. They work great!

    I'm making a table with 3 1/2 wide aprons. Material is 3/4 oak. Do I need one or two beadlock tenons?
    Joe M on Dec 14, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I assume you are using the tenons to attach the aprons to the legs. One should be sufficient, if you are concerned that the oak may twist over time you could use two smaller tenons one top and one bottom but as far as sufficient strength is concerned, one will do the job.
    What is the best wood type/species to use for the BeadLock tenon?
    newby on Feb 22, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Birch is my choice. Poplar I think would work well also, but not quite as strong or good for outdoor projects.

    I am retired newbie two woodworking. Is the three eights inch dowel the proper size to use when working with three-quarter inch stock? Thanks.
    Randy on Jan 22, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: 1/3 to 1/2 the stock thickness. I've used both 1/4 and 3/8 Beadlock tenons in 3/4 stock without issue.
    what glue is recommended?
    Bill H on Jun 16, 2017

    what size tenon stock should i use , and what would be the proper length of the tenon piece , for joining stile and rail pieces for 1 1/4" thick stock [ for custom interior doors [ 5/4 S4S clear ponderosa pine stock ] ? i am upping the strength of joinery from biscuits, and plan to buy the beadlock starter kit . i have 30 years of carpentry experience. , and after reading reviews , it sounds like several experimental mock-ups may be needed prior to actual application , to be completely accurate , yes? any updated tips and suggestions are much appreciated . thank you .
    w g on Dec 11, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I use Beadlock to build exterior gates made of clear cedar. The typical framework is 2x6 nominal. The 1/2 Beadlock tenons are what I prefer to use. Buying the 12" long tenon stock, I cut to length to just under 4", giving me almost 2" deep mortises. The trick is to do two tenons per joint, about 1" apart. If you're joining wider rails to your stiles, space them out further and perhaps add a third.

    If you're using 5/4 thick stock, the 1/2" tenon may be a bit too much, as you want to leave some 'meat' around the tenon locations. Sometimes the fit is so snug that it will have s hydraulic effect as you tap or clamp your pieces together and could end up with your wood splitting. I would recommend the 3/8" tenon for your project.

    I've built hundreds of gates over the last 5 years using the Beadlock system, and I've yet to hear of one joint failing; because of this, I confidently offer my customers a lifetime warranty on my joinery.

    You mention needing to practice on scrap first.... Absolutely true. It's all about finding a way to mark your layout so all your pieces connect where you want them to. I use a system of hash lines and arrows to use as orientation for mortising and assembly. Finding what works for you and getting a comfortable rhythm will allow you to make quick work of it eventually.

    Good luck, I totally recommend this product as a great alternative, with hundreds of successful projects, which have in part taken thousands of these Beadlock joints.
    I'm building a desk using 4/4 Quarter sawn oak which size beadlock tenon stock would be most appropriate for this application?
    DrCodfish on Mar 27, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Likely, your lumber will be 7/8 or less once it is planed. I recommend a 3/8 beadlock, so that you do not encounter any weakness from cracking or blowout at the joint
    I am making a table top out of 2" thick Maple what size beadlock should I be using? How far apart should I be placing the beadlock? The table will be about 8 ft long?
    NEWBIEWOOD on Jul 22, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Your maple stock should be stable so the beadlock is only to help with aligning the boards for glue-up. So any size will do, spaced every 2' or so.
    I am cutting off the rotten portion of a garage door bottom and wanting to headlock the new 5/4 bottom piece to the old. It will take probably 8-10 headlock tendons. How can I assure they will all align? It is not like biscuits where you have a lot of slop.
    LARRY J T on Dec 11, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: You set the jig so it drills a certain distance from 1 face. That gets locked in. Then you move the jig down repeatedly. You draw index lines across both faces and line up the jig with the index marks.
