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. When making finger joints on four sides of a box or drawer, why can all four sides not be done at once – two against the guide and two of them one finger-width from it?

  2. Thanks so much for a great video. I am just getting into woodwork and this excellent video has really motivated me to improve my skills. I have a router and planer on order and just got a new set of Dado blades. This video was fun to watch and your whole team did a fantastic job. I have been watching dozens of woodworking videos. This is my favourite.

  3. Considering you planned the box sides, why would you not cut all 4 with a top finger at once and cut the other 4 together to make the 4 box joints. Feels really inefficient and open to error putting your own offset each time. I appreciate showing it for 1 join but all 4 seemed odd. Even then, for just 1 join another spacer for the offset feels like a better solution after going to the effort to make the whole jig

  4. It took me nearly 2 weeks to complete the building of a bed frame. I take that to be because I ain't no carpenter. All the same I'm very grateful to this woodwork plan [ Check Details In My Channel ], it has really helped me do such a good project. The easy instructions were amazing.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
