The various styles and traditions of wood joinery can be used to make a structure stronger, more durable, and more aesthetically pleasing. The purpose of this class will be to introduce students to some of the basic and common variant styles and terminology of joinery. This will include considerations for deciding how two (or more) pieces of wood will be joined when creating an initial project plan. Techniques for lap joints, tongue and groove joints, box and dovetail interlocking joints, mortise-and-tenon joints, and some more specific styles of joinery will be discussed. There also will be demonstration of how to build a few useful jigs, and how to mark and cut a variety of joints, including dovetails and mortise joints, using both hand and machine tools. Students are encouraged to bring questions, example plans, tools, jigs, or reference material to enrich the discussion.
