    This is a reamer used to make the tapered through wedged mortise and tenon joints used in attaching legs to the seats of stools and Windsor chairs. The plans came from http://www.greenwoodworking.com/ The blade is made from a compass saw blade. Below is a template for turning the tenons made by making a test mortise with the reamer, then cutting it in half.

    Re: Tools you have made for projects

    Nice reamer Jim.

    For years I used the reamer in my seat blanks with a 6:1 and 11:1 taper for the entire tenon. The soft pine and butternut would eventually ease the tenon up "tighter" fit over the years but at a cost. Customers were not impressed with the protruding tenon tip.

    I have dropped back to a hybrid reamer and have no more trouble.

    I'll go into it a little more if there is interest but the hole in the seat blank is drilled to 3/4" and then reamed at the bottom portion to about 1" to seat the baluster bulb. I think it is a better go.











    I drill from the bottom and carve after the holes are drilled. I know this goes against conventional wisdom but I haven't had the feared tear out others mention by drilling first. I guess its another pins or tails first?
