Wow, that looks pretty nice. Is it yours or did you build it for someone else?

This was for myself. I needed a fence right there and I built it so I could show other people some fence work. Occasionally I will bring a customer by to look at it or send the pic for him to see.

It was a fun build, and the door is sturdy. Its amazing how strong mortise and tenon joinery is.

I am hoping to learn how to do some mortise & tenon, I am really trying to stretch the type of work I do, but I have to stretch my knowledge with it.

I hear ya! We all need to do more with this economy. I just added a metal bending siding job to my repertoire. We will see how that goes- HAHA.

As far as the tenoning goes, a slip tenon is the easiest way to do it. You can see how at this link:

The easier way for smaller doors and frames is with a KREGS jig sold at Lowes. This is FAST and easy. Plus the product is sturdy. Check this out:
