 Woodworking Joints The Most Common

 

Woodworking joints are used to connect two pieces of wood together. There are many types of joints, but the most common ones are dovetail, butt, mortise and tenon, half lap, half blind, box and scarf. In this article I will discuss the most common woodworking joints.

Dovetail joint

The dovetail joint is one of the most common joints in woodworking. It consists of two long dovetails cut into the edge of the boards and glued together with glue. The joint is held together by the dovetails, which are cut into the ends of the boards. This type of joint has a square or rectangular shape.

Butt joint

The butt joint is also one of the most common joints used in woodworking. The joint is made by cutting a groove into the edge of the boards. Then the boards are put together with glue and clamped together.

Mortise and tenon joint

The mortise and tenon joint is another of the most common joints used for connecting two boards together. The joint is made by making a hole through the board and then cutting a groove into the end of the board. Then the two boards are joined together with glue and clamps.

Half lap joint

The half lap joint is one of the least common woodworking joints. It is made by cutting a groove at the end of the boards. Then the ends of the boards are put together with the groove facing each other.

Half blind joint

The half blind joint is also one of the least common wood working joints. It is made by placing the boards together so that the groove is facing away from the other board. Then the two boards have to be clamped together and the groove filled with glue.

Box joint

The box joint is also one of the less common woodworking joints. The joint is made by placing the boards face to face and then clamping them together.

Scarf joint

The scarf joint is also one of the lesser common woodworking joints. The scarf joint is made by placing the two boards together with the groove facing each way. Then the two boards are clamped together and the groove is filled with glue.
