Turn some table legs on the table saw with a jig.

   Neat jig set up with the table saw. May be faster and sure looks easier than using my tenon cutter. Results look about the same


 I put mine in a vice and use a wrist breaking half inch drill with a tenon cutter.


 Ash legs for stock

    The table saw looks like a lot less wear and tear - my only concern would be the height adjustment on the blade to get the exact diameter on the peg/tenon. Once set they will certainly all be the same.

Rich's leg trimming looks just like my process which does give the same angle and height on each leg. Would work just as well for a 12' bench as a 3' one.

That is slicker than deer guts on a doorknob! I don't have a table saw, but I do have a radial arm saw. I am wondering how thick that blade is you have on your saw? What size is the threaded rod you run through the middle of the leg, and how deep do you go with it?

I ain't the woodcutter, but I can cut wood 'til the woodcutter gets here.

that's a lot easier way of cutting your bench legs the same length than how i've been doing it. thanks for the tip. also nice home made cylinder mill.  jg

   Here is a thread I posted the whole process I use. The best pictures start around reply 37. The sawmill works great not only to get the leg length right but it also cuts them all to the correct angle.

Still making benches in General Woodworking

    One thing I noticed here was the addition of the board on the bottom. I like that if you wanted to use a 4/4 board or slab instead of 8/4 or larger. I used to make them with 4" thick slabs and bury the whole tenon in the slab but I find 8/4 is much lighter and still plenty strong. If you wanted to make a 12-16 ft bench you could just add extra legs along the way and still cut them all the same with one pass on mill.

What size is the threaded rod you run through the middle of the leg, and how deep do you go with it?
Way cool!

I'm thinking that he is just using a lag screw into a pre-drilled hole.  It both holds the piece of stock and provides the drill with a place to spin it.  Very nice.

Edit: I went back and looked again - he is using a regular bolt.  For the top end, I would use a sharpened bolt (like a center on a lathe) so there would be a minimal hole that could be cut off if the legs were through-mortised into the bench top.

As far as blade height, if you make the hole in the jig something like 3" off the table, then you would just set the blade to 2½" for a 1" tenon, 2¼" for a 1½" tenon and 2" for a 2" tenon.

It is 3/8 threaded rod. I reversed one of those tap in  T nuts and bent the tab the other way to drive it.
I used two of these bearings on each end and double nutted the rod in. I filed the threads down on the non driven side.

Once you have the blade set to the right height,you lock it and all the legs are the same diameter. 

It is just a plain contractors blade. Maybe 3/32 kerf.
