This is a guide to the bewildering variety of joints used in woodworking. It takes the reader through the entire process of joinery, from preparing rough timber to assembling the finished joints. It gives illustrated instructions for all kinds of traditional joints, as well as modern alternatives such as dowels, biscuits, fasteners and knockdown joints. The applications of each joint are set out and illustrated, and both hand-tool and power-tool methods are described, along with instructions on marking and measuring for maximum accuracy.

Anyone new to woodworking, or even the more experienced woodworker, will find The Encyclopedia of Joint Making a valuable reference on woodwork joinery. For the first time, it combines information on wood material technology and design with the process of making individual joints, all in one fully illustrated volume. Beginning with two chapters covering layout and assembly basics and information on wood structure, grain, and gluing specific to joint design, the book is then divided into chapters on five joint families. Each of these chapters has step-by-step drawings with instructions for making major joints in that family using a variety of approaches by hand or power tools. Clear text and accompanying drawings explain the terminology of each family and the best applications of its various joints. Basic shopmade jigs that guide sawing, routing, planing, and chiseling or assist gluing are included with each family. The two final chapters show joinery using biscuit machines, doweling, knock-down joints, and fasteners.
