Tenon

TENON tĕn’ ən (יָד, H3338). A projection shaped on the end of a piece of wood for insertion into a corresponding hole in another piece to form a secure joint. The three sides of the Tabernacle were made of forty-eight “frames,” or boards, each one held in place at the bottom by tenons fitted into sockets of silver to give the boards stability (Exod 26:17, 19; 36:22, 24).
