5 Woodworking Joints For Beginners

Must read


In this video I will show you and explain 5 different woodworking joints. I will discuss the butt joint, rabbet joint, tongue and groove joint, dado joint, and the finger joint, also known as the box joint. This video is meant for the beginner woodworker that may want to learn ways of reenforcing the standard butt joint or are looking to branch out and try some other techniques. I will show simple techniques that don’t require spending a bunch of money, as well as, some accessories that can assist the same tasks. Hope you enjoy!

  1. I don't think any of those tools are novice tools; novice tools are a dril/drill-driver, hand saw maybe a circular saw and a sander at most

  2. Is funny when you say with the minimum equipment… what you have there set up is a dream 2🤙👍👍👍

  3. can you list butt joint fastening types (screwing, pocket holing, dominos and so on) from weakest to strongest?
    How to know which one to use?

  4. Good sir I am going to create an adjustable incline and decline bench. There are two legs. Front leg and back leg. Two longer pieces of wood attach to the front and back legs and these two longer pieces meet at an angle almost like a triangle. Woul a finger joint be the best option to join these two pieces of wood where they meet and also where they meet the legs?

    Sorry for my bad terminology. I am completely new to wood work. You can see the kind of angle the wood needs to meet at in this picture https://indigofitness.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/U099_Adj.Incline-Render-Folded-768×768.jpg

    Thanks for any help.

  5. Some are complaining about not having tools (non-specialized). Plenty of videos on making a saw table on youtube if you cannot afford a table saw. Thanks for the tips and methods you provided. Thank You very much.
