You can either split down the end grain or saw down the end grain depending on how large you tenon is, Paul shows you how to do both. Once the shoulder of the tenon has been cut, use the chisel to pare away the fuzzy bits. Paul recommends leaving a 1/16” (1.5mm) or so and cutting your tenon slightly fatter than needed.
