I am currently planning to make a small stool which uses mortise and tenon joints (imitating the ones in my apartment). I was wondering whether the kind of tenon used is important.
More precisely, does it make a difference whether I use a) a tenon that has been made by cutting 4 pieces of wood or b) a tenon that has been made by cutting just 2 pieces of wood ?
Apologies that I don't know the professional names for those two kinds of tenon!
Any advice would be great.
I presume you mean these two types of M&T joints.
The double M&T below is better where the stretcher is small in section, because it doubles the effective gluing area.

Thanks for the reply.
That wasn't quite the two kinds I meant. I think the proper way to say it is "shouldered tenon" versus a "shoulderless tenon".
I've got a nice (old) book by Sam Allen which gives some useful advice so I'll try to find it tomorrow and scan some interesting pages.

Great! Looking forward to it...
