Donald...loose tenons.  Much easier that way!  The joints all have a dado or rabbet to support the joint in one direction, the tenon aligns it in the other direction.  Good fit on the tenon thickness assures alignment, the width of the tenon not so important due to the dado/rabbet.  Using epoxy any gaps in the width are filled with strength...not foam  Wink
The "mortiser" is an old tool & cutter grinder.  Handy for sharpening, but works pretty good for mortising too.  I did have to make the end mill holders for it, and top speed is only 3500, but that is plenty fast in actual use.

Jeff,
They're fantastic I love them. To bad I don't have room for cabinets.  Embarrassed

WOW  Your great great grandchildren will love'em.  Get your name and date on there somewhere.  Really nice.


Thanks, Guy...and that's a good idea.  But now I got to crawl inside to carve a name & date somewhere inaccessible?  You shoulda told me that earlier!

You might concider a branding iron  or maybe someone could direct you to a place that makes brass tags that you could mount on the outside.

Finally finished this project Roll Eyes  The drawers are redwood with maple inlay.  The doors are oak plywood with black walnut edging that stands 1/8" proud of the door face.  Just trying different things on the shop cabinets.

Thank you all.  Took me a while, but have been doing a lot of bike riding.
The top is 3/4" plywood with 1/4" hardboard glued on top.  Oak edging screwed on so it's a little easier to replace.  Now I got to finish those collet holders!
