Dovetail Joint
Very strong because of the way the “tails” and “pins” are shaped. This makes it difficult to pull the joint apart and virtually impossible when glue is added. This joint is used in our drawer box construction and in other areas where strength is required. When cut accurately they are very impressive and attractive.


Mortise and Tenon Joinery
A tongue (tenon) that slots into a hole (the mortise) cut in the mating piece of timber. The strength of this joint makes it ideal for furniture construction. We use this method on virtually all of our designs. Eliminates the use of nails and screws for a stronger, more attractive looking design.


Miter Joint
Made by cutting the ends of the pieces on an angle equal to one half of the angle of the finished product. Cutting each piece at a 45-degree angle makes a square 90-degree corner. Glue and a biscuit fasten them. (Small oval discs made from composite wood material that expands when moistened with glue). We use this joinery for picture and mirror frames.


Step Joint
made by cutting pieces into “steps” and fitting them together. This joint lends great strength without the use of nails or screws, allows for clean look. We use this joinery technique for one of our lines.
