A finger joint is one of the strongest ways to connect two pieces of wood and it requires no screws or nails, only glue. This instructable details the techniques and tools I have successfully used over the years to do this.So, rather than just showing a single project, I will demonstrate a system of fairly simple woodworking joints that you can use to create your own wood projects.

Colonial Americans, Japanese woodworkers and even the ancient Egyptians and Chinese developed all kinds of ways to fasten wood together using only the wood itself.
Nails and screws hold the wood fast, allowing little movement which eventually cracks the wood around the metal fastener.
