Woodworking 101 – Common Woodworking Joinery

Woodworking 101 - Common Woodworking Joinery
I ask a couple of my woodworking friends to help me talk to you about some common woodworking joinery. Woodworking joinery is the method of joining two pieces of wood together to create a more complex item. Woodworking Joinery is the one thing we as woodworkers need to know and this video talks about 4 common woodworking joints that you are most likely to use in your projects.

In this video you will learn about the following joints

  1. This is great information for all. Beginners get something to start from, and those working with wood for a while can always use a refresher every now and then. Stumbled upon your video while looking for a remedy for my bridle joint. Glad to see some of you younger kids so knowledgeable on woodworking.

  2. Woodworking 101, with thousands of dollars in tools. I think someone who has all of these tools is probably someone who already knows this stuff, and probably wouldn’t watch this video.

  3. 4 joints I love and use regularly. Thanks. I like your box joint jig. The one I made is primative compared to your jig. I learned.

  4. Here are 5 top tips to follow as a woodworker who is just getting started on a new hobby or business

    1. Know Your Wood.There are many different types of wood with different characteristics. Knowing the different types of wood, how to care for and treat it, and how it will react in different environments is key.

    2. Pre-drill Screw Holes. When using a screw to attach a piece of wood to a surface pre-drilling the holes is a good idea. Depending on how thick the wood is or how close you are to the edge, you can risk the board splitting from the pressure.

    3. Use a Stop-Block. The stop block is a quick way to make precise cuts on boards when you are cutting multiples of the same size.

    4. Use a Jig.  Whether you are making pocket angle holes or just installing cabinet pulls, a jig is a great time saver.

    5. Plan Your Project.  Last but not least, having a plan and a drawing of your project beforehand will really make for a smoother experience.

  5. Thanks guys, appreciate the video and the information! Only recommendation for future videos is get a better mic! The audio is sometimes difficult to hear, sounds like you guys are very far away. Regardless, much obliged sirs!

  6. Sorry but that Tenon at 8:38 was one of the sloppiest I have ever seen, he did not have to square the mortice it would have fitted either way, nice try but when you set yourself up to show others, you have to be good enough, I won't thumb down as at least you went to the effort of explaining how to do it even if you did not succeed

  7. Laney, Jay, Brian & Steve, thank you so much for showing the eclectic skills in a single video. Absolutely fantastic. Love all your workshops and gadgets. Gosh, the dado stacks are so expensive, however, I must buy one. All techniques were brilliantly explained. Thank you and best wishes.

  8. Would the half lap joint be good for the frame of a dresser? Or should I go with something else? I would ideally like to make my own stuff with little to no nails/screws. thanks.

  9. Hi, I'm making a dog house out of old pallets. What joint would you recommend for strength and stability? Thanks in advance
