- As a hands-on study in joinery, how to mark up and complete nine standard joints that are in constant use today.
- Build a basic window frame of styles rails and muntins, but unusually using the nine different joints to assemble it.
- This will demonstrate how the joints relate to each other, and how to progress through the project so that this joinery goes together seamlessly.
- Why these different joints exist, and what they are used for, how understanding of these nine joints, allows all variations that may be needed to be achievable.
- Learn to with practice, achieve the speed, accuracy, and safety, that is impossible for machines to match when producing, one-off, be-spoke builds.
- Be confident to tackle any project, and to understand what tools are vital and why.
Project - is a small frame with muntins, using nine different joints to demonstrate. The frame is worth keeping as a reference for useful joinery.
