Fig. 188.—Haunching with Groove above.
This must be remembered by the worker when marking out his stiles with the marking knife. (right-hand sketch) shows the haunch, tenon, and groove G at the bottom. (left-hand illustration) shows G (groove) at top, and HH (the haunch) at the bottom. Tenons may be glued together and wedged as shown at if for inside work; but if for outside work they are generally smeared with thick paint and wedged up. For light-class cabinet work it is usual to cut the mortise about seven-eighths of the distance through the stile and make the tenon to match it; the edge of the finished work does not then show any indication of the joint, and it leaves a nice clean surface at the edge of the work for polishing or varnishing.
