This is one of the more complex joints to build but it is one of the strongest. It uses interlocking fingers that join the side of a drawer to the front of the drawer that is used to store items within the dresser or dresser. No nails, screws or dowels needed, just white glue. These fingers are cut at an angle, which gives this wood joint greater strength.
2. bed – A bed made of wood will often simply employ a box or frame on which the mattress will rest. The type of union that is usually used in the construction of the box are the mortise and tenon joint. The typical mortise and tenon joint consists of two parts that fit exactly together. The mortise is a hole into which the tenon, or stump, fits. The glue is used to strengthen the joint. The mortise hole and stub of the tenon are usually square or rectangular in shape.
3. Bank – A bench is generally used to support the weight of a seated person, so the joints used to connect the pieces of wood that make up the bench must be robust. Tea mortise and tenon joint it could be used in the construction of a wooden bench due to its robust design. If the bench is to be used outdoors, the tight nature of these joints will be key in helping the wooden structure last a long time.
From these limited examples, it can be seen that different types of furniture use different joints in their construction. Using top quality wood furniture plans will help you choose the best joint to make your wood furniture project a success.
