If we spend the money on buying our DIY tools for wood, what we want from them is to facilitate the work in our woodworking shop. One of the woodworking tasks that takes more time is to cut wood joints by hand. If you want to learn to cut wood joints by hand and reach the skills of a carpenter, I recommend you to find a school or a master who teaches you in person. But if you are looking for a way to cut them using your woodworking electric tools, here you can find a selection of woodworking jigs and guides explained step by step. These are the ones I use to make mortise and tenon joints, miter joints and dovetail joints among other wood joints.
Some of these woodworking techniques need more time than others to cut the wood joints, but when we acquire the needed skill and when we set correctly the woodworking jigs and guides, we can cut them quite fast and with a lot of precision. In many cases, being able to make these wood joints is the first step in order to make our homemade woodworking projects.
