The "E-Z" way to build log furniture! Cut perfect tenons at the ends of logs and branches
E-Z Log Tools
The E-Z Log Tenon cutters can be adjusted to cut 1" diameter up to 2-1/2" diameter tenons at the ends of logs and branches, and are available in either a 45° or 90° chamfer. We also offer a 45° Countersink bit for mortises, and a strap clamp to hold down any shaped log so you can peel bark, drill pilot holes, and cut the tenons safely without marking the logs like traditional clamps.
The pencil-sharpener type log tenon cutters are great for certain projects, and we use them frequently for smaller projects requiring less than an inch diameter tenon. They come in specific sizes. If you need different sized tenons, it can get quite expensive. The E-Z Log Tenon cutters have two major advantages over the pencil-sharpener type cutters. One is the ability to adjust the size of the tenon, and the second is the guide bar, which ensures a straight tenon. The pencil-sharpener type cutters have no guide. You place the bit onto the end of the log, and it is up to you to hold your drill level and steady throughout the entire cut. A knot can throw it off, and that can produce inconsistent tenon diameters and gouges, even on small diameter tenons. The result is an unprofessional looking tenon. Been there, done that.
