How to Cut Joinery Joints

Wood joints

If we spend the money buying our DIY tools for wood, what we want from them is that they make our job easier. One of the longest carpentry tasks is to do the wood joints. If you want to learn to cut them by hand with the skill of a master carpenter, I recommend that you find a school or a teacher with whom to learn in person. But if you are looking for how to cut them using your DIY electric machines, here is a selection of guides and procedures explained step by step that I use to make box and tenon assemblies, miter joints and dovetail joints, among others.

Some of these carpentry techniques to make wood assemblies require spending more time than others, but when we get the hang of it and acquire the necessary skill, and in cases where it is necessary we have our adjusted cutting guides, we can make different types of wood assemblies fairly quickly and acceptably accurate. In many cases, being able to make these unions is the first step to be able to do our home carpentry projects.
