This no-nonsense guide to choosing and creating the best joint for all purposes features 35 types of joints. It includes detailed advice on the correct tools required for each joint and how to use them. It contains clear colour photographs with all techniques explained in jargon-free language. It comes from a UK author. This comprehensive and practical book demystifies the all-important subject of choosing, designing and cutting woodworking joints. Strong, appropriate and well-fitting joints are one of the hallmarks of the skilled woodworker. Making them properly requires intelligent planning, accurate marking out and a sufficient degree of care in the cutting, fitting and final assembly. A methodical approach is essential, and that is what this book provides. Professional woodworker John Bullar takes us through choosing the appropriate joint for the purpose to assembling finished pieces. We learn about timber selection, tools and adhesives, but above all we learn the working methods and habits that are needed to achieve consistently good results. The traditional hand techniques that are still the essential foundation of the woodworker's skill are fully explained.

The section on machine-made joints covers every power tool needed for joints and how to get the best results from everything from a biscuit jointer and bandsaw to the router.
