These state-of-the-craft cutters produce perfect tenons with radius shoulder profiles for the sturdiest-possible log furniture construction. The self-centering design ensures flawlessly shaped tenons, and dual precision-ground blades cut twice as fast as single blade models and stay sharp longer. Plus, as part of the cutters' exclusive "IN-SIGHT" visual measurement system, slots along the shaft combine with radial grooves at 1/2" intervals to let you to see your progress and measure tenon length while you cut. Body is CNC machined from aircraft aluminum for maximum strength and minimum weight. Available in four sizes (1/2", 1", 1-1/2", and 2") corresponding to the diameter tenon that each will cut.


Each Tenon Cutter is made in the USA of rust-proof 410 hardened stainless steel. The dual blade technology removes more material in less time, and allows for longer blade life. While the built-in tenon measurement sight gauge makes it easy to see depth of cut.

tenon cutter
I have used these cutters for years and they are excellent I do NOT however put them on a hand held drill. A much safer and easier way to us them is with the drill in a shop made sliding carriage on rollers.

it works
Bought it to go along with the 1 1/2" cutter I have. Using this 1/2" version made me realize that the wood should not be completely dry. I found that if I tried to get a long tenon cut, the wood would snap at just about the time I'm letting off the drill trigger.

Excellent tool with some room for improvement
These tenon cutters do precisely what you expect them to, and with ease (I used a 14.4V 3-speed cordless on birch). However, I noted two things that I'd like to see the manufacturer change:
1) The blades on this model are curved, which means that their seating screws must be torqued well beyond normal to keep the blades from wandering (and therefore altering your tenon diameter).
2) The deburring on the aluminum body is fairly amateur, especially for a $100+ product.

Great on soft woods
Cutter worked great on spruce and pine. Do not try this on ash, maple or hardwoods.

I was unable to find the 5/8" cutter I was looking for. 1" is too big for my needs.

I ordered it for my son for Christmas. His house is very rustic and he's interested in making log furniture for it.

which size is most commonly used ?
Dave K on Jul 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The one inch cutter is the most commonly used. It is a good size for the structural parts of chairs and small tables. (Don't forget the complementary Forstner bit for the mortise)! Then, the 1/2" size is often paired with it, as it is good for the smaller parts, such as chair back spools. The larger one is also paired with it when a larger piece, such as a bed, heavy table or garden bench is desired.
