Making Furniture with Beadlock Floating Tenons
In this week's Rockler demo, you'll learn how the new Beadlock Pro Jig makes it easy to create floating tenons when you're building furniture. The Beadlock system creates incredibly strong, totally concealed joints with only your hand drill. Just pop the included drilling guide into the jig in the ''A'' position to locate the initial holes, then slide it to the ''B'' position to drill the overlapping holes.

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 tenon stock increase the amount of precious glue surface and also prevent the joint from racking.
