Question
I am looking for a tenon cutter to cut tenons on cherry dowels for chairs. Everthing I read is cutters for log furniture. Can they be used for fine furniture also? I am looking for a 90 degree cutter and don't know a good brand or where to buy one. There are no woodworking stores near where I live.

Thank you for your input.
Jim

Answer
Jim,

I know that the woodcraft store in our area carries a variety of tenon cutters.

I am not sure if I have seen a 90 degree cutter; but, I know that their tenor cutters are good quality metals.
You should be able to get your answers on their Website or from one of their stores.

Expertise

We have been in the wood care business for almost 30 years (we are still learning) We do refurbishing and touch-up of furniture, paneling, antiques etc. The number one question that we receive; is what do I use on my furniture, to keep it looking moisturized, clean and get the depth perception back into the finish. I believe we can help on products to use and answer questions on why we don't use certain products that are available to us. I am sure that there are many questions on wood care that we can't answer; but, give us a try anyway. We find that many people use products for maintaining the wooden furniture, etc., and can't understand the reason it looks worse as they continue to use certain products. Most people use the products that their mothers and grandmothers used. Finishes on furniture have come a long way; from shellacs, waxes, varnishes etc. Give us an email and see if we can help with some of your questions and concerns.

Experience

Have worked in Omni, Brown Palace etc. hotels. Have refurbish items in the Colorado Govenors mansion and the Colorado Capital building etc. We have been caring for millions of dollars worth of furniture and antiques for large corporations for years.
