Woodworking Joints


Woodworking Joints

Mortice and tenon joints are used for many different types of construction including the construction of tables, chairs, windows, doors, stools, and other structures.

There are many different types of mortice and tenon joints but the main ones are: Through tenon, blind tenon, and haunched tenon. With these and other commonly used joints, you can tackle any project with some hand tools and sketches, well you could, but using the tools the professionals use, like routers, jigs, bandsaws and circular saws make the job a lot easier.

Not only do you get a finished product that took joiners of old years to perfect, but you also get to learn how to use these tools safely and properly. You can then decide which tools you need and which you don’t and what sort of joinery you want to do.

We also explore modern practical methods like Pocket Hole and Biscuit joinery.

Join David at the Great British Woodshop to learn about these joints ready for your next project.
