After joining the table top boards together, the next step was to join the aprons to the legs. I use the same tools as I used on the tabletop and distress on the exposed faces of the boards that will form the base.
Today we’re going to look at four different types of basic wood joints, including the pocket hole screw joint, the biscuit joint, the half-lap joint and the simple edge glued joint. In addition to a miter joint, you can also make butt joints, using different boards of the same thickness. Another joinery method that is great for joining the edge of one board to the face of another is the biscuit joint. To make this joint you simply trace the width of the board onto the end of the other board to which it will be joined. Finger jointing is a method of joining short wood segments using a board's end grain boundary to create a new and longer board with a continuous natural , as-grown, grain orientation. This time proven technique goes back over 4500 years and continues to be a way to make good wood better and longer at the same time.
Our finger joints are machine made and the final joint is strong and can only be seen by the grain color changes from board to board.
The board segments are trimmed from longer quality stock to remove any and all blemishes, flaws, knots, cracks, splits, wane, rot, pin holes or other defects that normally are found in boards. Removing all the defects also makes these glued up blanks excellent for turning and molding blanks as the glue line acts like the parent wood and goes through the whole joint with no voids. Now all that’s left to do is fill in those pocket holes with wood filler, sand, and finish it.
For the Briwax, I just use any old rag and wipe the wax on making sure to get it into the pores of the wood.

I use some wood glue for the dowels, place them in, and begin to clamp the first two planks into one another. I then mess around with different possible arrangements and look for any irregularities in the edges and fitment of boards next to one another as well as determining what will serve as the topside of the boards. While we’ll leave the more sophisticated methods to professional woodworkers, there will be times as a do-it-yourselfer when knowing how to join wood will come in handy.
These are some simple wood joinery methods that you’ll be glad you have in your basic woodworking repertoire. To make this type of joint requires a variety of clamps to hold the wood in place until the glue dries. This joint is made by removing half of the thickness of two boards, which are then glued together to form a joint that is the same thickness as the board. This is perhaps the simplest joint, where the edge of one board is glued to the edge of another.
While pretty basic, the wood joints we made today will get you started and will expand your basic woodworking skills.
Initially, I used 2×2 furring strips, but the wood kept splitting, so I decided to invest in some hardwood 2x2s. First, you set the depth of the jig to the thickness of the wood that you’re drilling into.
It works by cutting a slot into the board that accepts this piece of compressed wood, called a biscuit. It helps during the glue-up if you orient the boards alternating bark side up and bark side down. Now we’ll clamp our boards with these pistol grip clamps, making sure to clean up any glue squeeze-out with a damp rag.

Bryan suggested building a simple wood table top to fit inside where the glass top once sat. Let it dry for a few hours and you have a wood panel that is stronger than a single piece of wood of the same width. We happened to have a round grill mat that was exactly 30 in round so Bryan used that as a guide to draw a circle onto the wood table top. The whole tabletop project cost about $15 for the wood, since we had everything else on hand. Again, we’re setting it to ?”, which is the thickness of the wood we’re working with. With a 1″ thick wood chisel, now split the wood on this line until the piece is removed.
To join the boards together we used metal strapping and then added a piece of plywood for stability. Once all four planks are screwed together, I test fit the breadboards onto the flush end and find the best fitting board.
Now, simply drill through the collar holes in the jig to create the pockets in the bottom of the wood.
To build the base, I begin by cutting all my wood down to size (the picture also shows the bench legs that I cut at the same time).
