Woodworking MasterClass: Drawbore Mortise-and-Tenon

November 2, 2019

Step up your joinery skills with a new woodworking technique

This weekend's Woodworking challenge is to take your mortise and tenon joinery to another level with a drawbore technique taught by Paul Sellers.

Drawbore means drilling holes through the mortise and through the tenon so that a peg can slide through and hold the joint together. The holes, however, do not align. They are offset slightly to pull the joint together tighter.
