What Joints Should I Use in Furniture? - Ask M&T


 

We’ve just posted our first “Ask M&T” video on our YouTube channel. We had a reader ask us, “As a novice woodworker, I struggle to determine the best joints for my projects. What’s the best method of determining the most appropriate joint for any given project?” 

The above is our “Ask M&T” answer to that very question. 

We’re excited about this new series because it enables us to give time to give full answers to our readers’ questions. Since our number one goal with M&T is to celebrate historic craftsmanship by empowering readers to work efficiently with plane and saw, we thought it would be a good idea to film our answers for you.

So consider this a start. Not sure how often we’ll do this. Hopefully on a regular schedule. Got a question? Wonder what our opinion is on a topic? Ask away. We’ll do our best to give whatever answer we can.
