Did this video help you?

Rowan Wood: please tell me which kind of mortising machine you are using in the video. also, i really like this joint. it makes a lot of sense for a frame maker. avoiding screws when putting together a frame is very important, to me, aesthetically. i would also like to see one done where the tenon does not go all the way through and is hidden. thanks for the tutorial.

Ronald Tatum: I love these videos. Thank you, very much.

Cesar Caoili: beautiful,. i love to learn more.

Lane Lear: An excellent Video! To the point, no waisted time! You explained the process and why the Why is they key to learning because if one learns the why! They have the answers to when the process did not work for them. 

fchall1949: This was a very instructional video. Thank you for taking the time to explain each cut. I like this joint a lot.

goosecouple: Very good

liudas5377: Thank you so much for taking the time to post video. This is THE JOINT I have dreamed of making and now I can give it a try......

BeeHiverson: Tthat's an extremely nice shop!

Cg willie Willie: very nice joint thanks for the vid on this

Ming W: very nice! i have to try this

Tom Brown: Cool joint. Very mechanically sound, compared to other miters. Thank you for the video and thank you for sharing your woodworking.

Joshua Lockman: Thanks for the tips! Can't wait to try it!

SuperKwame1: Thanks for this video.

James Campbell: Having said that the joint design was meant to eliminate end grain showing, why did the mortice need to go right through? Was this for wedging purposes, if not, surely the mortice could have been stopped say about 5mm from the outer edge assuming the tenon was a tight fit.

registrum: A new joint for me to practice on. Very nicely done video! I like the way this was done but wonder how you'd feel about using dado blades on your table saw to make the tenon?

mfcman2k7: yes but power tools do it all for you even a monkey could do 99% of joins using power tools I do all my joints by hand I have been doing joinery since I was 12 yrs. old and I have been building tables and cabinet since I was 14 all by hand

Tom Brown: Thank you for the great video. Beautiful work and informative.

eng35ine: very nicely done sir. good video. keep them coming. thanks

simhopp: I think that is very good point. long grain to long grain joint can be achieved with box joint with miter front. no reason for mortise, if the goal is not to hide the joint. and you can wedge hidden mortise also, so through mortise for wedging is not a good reason.

mfcman2k7: well we know on thing my would working would be better than yours coz you have no skill

wnwoodworks: The joint is design to eliminate end grain to end grain joinery, not really for hiding end grain. By adding a mortise and tenon, it gives us a long grain to long grain joinery which is much stronger. At 1:00 Yeung explains the two type of joinery. One thru and one blind. It's a matter of preference. The thru miter and mortise joint is very common in Chinese furniture. Thanks for watching and for your comment.

Joe Muscella: Great video! Thank You!

Dennis C. Latham: This is awesome - THANKS for taking out the time to make this video.

Jeff Bridge: Very well thought out video. Easy to follow and understand. Excellent craftsmanship.Please keep making these videos. I really learned alot and enjoyed watching. Thank You.

lucylu40122: You are right I have no Skill tools.LMAO

mfcman2k7: proves my point you cnt do crap u have no skills what so ever and at least I can call my self a crafts man unlike all you people who take the easy was I ca look at a product I have made and b please that I have don't it not used £1000's of tool

mfcman2k7: why dont people do joints by hand any more

JOHNRICH LEE: Will you do a video on Triple-Lap from your book Classi Jints with Power Tools.

moo moo: Thanks for the great video Yeung. I have your book and would like to see more of your techniques in video form. When my schedule allows I will be taking one of your classes at William's school. Keep up the good work.

lucylu40122: I sure hope your woodworking is better than your spelling,lol

Everett Bryan: Well done!

wnwoodworks: Yeung is out of the country and knowing how he works, I'll answer for him. We use the Forrest WWII #1 grind flat top blade for joinery here at the school, Yeung prefers this blade because it does not leave scoring marks. It's flat and smooth all the way across which makes a slightly better joint. Because it's a thru tenon we prefer this blade. For close M&T joint, dado set would be much quicker and preferred. Sorry for delay response. Thanks so much for watching.

kingofcastlechaos: chisels

Ravindra Babu Pentela: Excelent video. Very easy.

mjthomas99: Bravo-Zulu....well done Sir.

8irger: thank you

Prostheta: Thank you for a wonderful video, Yeung! I'm going to try a few of these this week :-)

Hany Gerges: You are very smart skilled carpenter. Thank you.

embwee: great video; excellent teacher!

synapse131: Smart techniques. Thanks.

WV591: So a table saw with special miter sled jig. Mortising machine. Band saw and at least an hour for each joint. No thx.

mfcman2k7: no skill in joinery no more its all machines that do it for you

duncang55: Why not do the miter cut in one pass for the mortise?

Alfredo Isaac: I have never trusted the strength of a plain 45 degree but joint. This mortise and tenon miter joint looks very strong and I will try to do it following the precise instructions shown in this video. Thanks for posting.

BRAINWASH2K: Excellent work. You are very precise and this tutorial is very easy to comprehend. I will purchase this book.

str8chevys: Thank you very much I learned alot from your video.

lucylu40122: This should make you happy,I just ordered a Lamello biscuit joiner,your post talked me right into it.lol

2Phast4Rocket: Hello Mr. Chan. I just read your book. The first type of joinery I made after reading your book was to make tendon using the jig you described. Wow, talking about a simple jig to make and a perfectly fitted tendons in no time at all. Thank you very much.

steve o: Thankyou for your informative video. I have used this joint now a couple of times in different projects and it is nothing short of excellent. Your instruction is easy to follow and making this joint is now simple and quick. The joint itself is extremely strong. Thanks again for sharing...10 thumbs up
