Joinery

There are many different ways of joining one piece of wood to another. From the humble blacksmith's iron nail to modern screws, from a scarf to join two pieces end to end to metal brackets, from a tongue and groove joint to a glued biscuit joint. While always using the most appropriate, we find that the pegged mortice and tenon is the one we use most frequently.

 

Whether employed in a small piece of furniture or a large timber frame building the mortice and tenon has passed the test of time. Many are still intact and holding their wood together after five centuries.
