Loose Tenon Fix

Loose Tenon Fix There's a quick and easy way to repair tenons that fit too loosely in the mortise, be it an old piece of furniture or a brand new project. I cut an old pair of nylon stockings into small sections to fit around the tenon. The nylon mesh wraps easily around any shape of tenon, and the mesh provides a good gluing surface. Plus, the nylon mesh usually provides just the right thickness to make the tenon fit snugly in the mortise.

Good woodworking,
