 Wavy tenons
Author: clarnibass

Does anyone know WHY some companies make a wavy tenon? This is the tenon that is not just grooved but instead two big waves with gaps in the middle and ends. I posted about it before and it is pretty obvious this is a terrible idea with nothing but disadvantages. I just can't think why they do this. My best/only guess is they used shellac to glue them. I've never seen one actually glued with shellac or any type of filler glue but I don't know if ever saw any originals. But I can't see an advantage over the regular grooved tenon even if they did use shellac. It is probably slower and/or more expensive to make too, especially than the non-grooved tenon that would best anyway with the best glue. So does anyone know WHY?
