Wood Joinery and Construction

  • Blue Heron Woodworking (map)

Joinery is, literally, what holds your woodworking projects together. Put your hand and power tool skills to work and learn how to make the right joint for every application. Learn what makes a strong joint and learn how to make them. Butt joints, dado, dovetail, tongue and groove, mortise and tenon, miter, lap, pocket, glued joints and others will be explored. Discover the secrets of nails, screws, and adhesives. Students can practice making joints with hand and power tools. Participants should have basic hand and power tool skills and you are welcomed to bring their own.
