Possibly the most important task in woodworking is joinery - attaching one board to another. It can also be a thoroughly confusing task. There are countless woodworking joints - rabbets, dadoes, dovetails, mortises and tenons - which do you choose? How do you make it?
In Joining Wood, author/craftsman Nick Engler simplifies this complex subject, showing how master woodworkers use good sense and a few elementary rules of thumb to produce strong, durable designs. He also demonstrates how to make dozens of popular woodworking joints, from a simple miter to an elegant through dovetail, using just five basic cuts!
