The mortise and tenon joint is one of the most important joins in the construction of quality furniture. The slot or hole in the wood is called the mortise, the tongue or projecting part of a piece of wood is called the tenon. When properly crafted, the tenon is fitted into the mortise, glued (and often pegged) to form a wood joint of superior strength. Virtually all furniture base kits by Classic Designs feature mortise and tenon joinery throughout. (An exception occurs with the pedestal tables, which feature a precision hardware system for additional strain protection).
