    Would you ever cut a V=notch in the end and add a thin wedge, that extends past the end (perhaps 1/8″ at most) as a means of locking the tenon into the mortise? Or, would you only use the tension and some glue?

      Hi Christopher. You could add a blind wedge to the joint if you wanted to. In my experience with this I’ve simply glued the tenon into the mortice. But wedging would certainly increase the joint’s integrity.
