The body design of the Veritas Tapered Tenon Cutters is similar to the Veritas Dowel and Tenon Cutters; however, the straight-edged high-carbon steel blade will put tapered tenons on the tips of turnings, dowel or rustic furniture components to fit into tapered holes, such as on the legs and spindles of a Windsor chair. The cutter works much like a hand-held pencil sharpener; you either rotate the workpiece while pressing it into the cutter body or you can rotate the tool on the workpiece.
Caution: Do not use these cutters with a power feed to make dowelling, as sustained use will lead to extreme heat build-up and the bodies of the cutters will become extremely hot.
