I learned a lot about joinery from some trial and error attempts. I still don’t think I fully understand all joinery and their applications. One thing I learned from my trial and error work on my coffee table was that there are three types of joining; end to end, end to side, and side to side. Let me know if I missed any?
I also learned that certain joints are appropriate for certain applications. End to end joints include finger and dovetail joints, end to side joints include mortice and tenon or sliding dovetail joints, and side to side joints include tongue and groove and ship lap joints.
I had scoured the internet and places that normally I can find information but I was never able to find this information until I had to discover it just from my experiments.
I know more information has to be out there on joints and their appropriate application. Does anyone have some sources that they return to when deciding what type to joint to use when? I’m hoping to find a resource that teaches more about traditional application for each joint type.
Thanks for any help.
