Wooden joints book,woodworking business books,creative homemade bookshelf ideas - For Begninners
Since Bob Lang and I returned from our scouting trip for potential book projects at the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts, I have had the opportunity to build a few southern projects.
Evidently, that was not good enough for the Piedmont woodworker that originally built this piece sometime between 1740 and 1780. I have not seen this before, but I can tell you I will keep it in my bag of joinery tricks. Glen Huey is a former managing editor of Popular Woodworking Magazine, a period furniture maker and author of numerous woodworking books, videos and magazine articles.
I’m assuming this frame and pannel joint was done this way to hide end grain as well.
I have not tried this joint, but see how it could how it could be done on a well tuned table saw, with a lot of care. I study for my personnal culture the different existing wood joints, and how to realize them. The lady’s desk I built in the November 2011 issue (#193) had double-blind dovetails where the case sides joined the top.
My project will be to do furniture (as bench, table, chair) with different wood joints and to highlight them in order to show to the user how it works (maybe create something which can be easily assemble and take apart), and how wonderful are the wood joints.
