When most people think of joinery, the first images that come to mind are hand-carved panels and chairs from Byzantine architecture. However, with the advent of modern technology, there are many ways to use joinery in the home or the shop today. Joinery Adelaide is the art of joining thin wooden or plastic pieces to form intricate shapes, such as bookcases, tables, cabinets, and even artificial or human-made fibreglass moulds. In the context of the home, joinery may be anything from the joining of thin sheets of plastic to hand-carved wood decorations and accents.
Mortise and tenon joints may be one of the oldest and most common joinery techniques. Mortise and tenon joints refer to the joining of one piece of wood with a tenon’s help, a tiny sliver of the wood that fits into the eye of the cut end of the joint and holds it in place. The term mortise comes from the French word for meaning “a cut”. A tenon joint is usually stronger than the tenon used in the joinery of a wood veneer or solid wood piece.
Mortise and tenon joints are quite easy to perform, even for beginners, and require only a few tools to get the job done. These tools include a power saw, a handsaw, a chisel, a mitre saw, and a clippers or router. The wood must be very thin, as up to six inches are required between two or more wood pieces together in a cross-cut fashion. Using a mitre saw with a crosscut blade, and chisel will aid in ensuring a clean cut.
One of the advantages of using this type of DIY project is that there is no need to worry about achieving an accurate and symmetrical joint because the joinery is perfectly secure. It is also ideal for thin wood such as plywood. If one of the pieces suffers a crack, all the better since no part of the wood will be damaged. It can be difficult to hide a small crack or tear in a piece of wood, and this method of joinery Adelaide provides an opportunity to conceal small irregularities so that your wood piece looks absolutely beautiful.
When choosing woodworking joinery, it’s important to think about the stability of the individual pieces. A good choice would be a vibration reduction joinery that makes use of internal locking. This kind of joinery requires no mechanical parts or moving parts. It’s very simple to remove the boards if they need to be replaced, and the internal hinges allow for easy access to the board corners when the need arises. This type of joinery also requires less material than some other joinery Adelaide options.
