  • James: All joints can be broken down into one of 6 categories. Once you understand the categories you can easily choose what you want for your project. Butt, Half Lap, Bridal, Mortise and Tenon, Finger joint, Splined

Q & A:

Brad Ward: Question for the actual show, so you recommend learning joinery with hand tools as much as possible? Or just use the power tools if you have them?

Tom from Pittsburgh: I have a quick question for you three. If you could spend a day in the shop with either Paul Sellers or Roy Underhill who would it be? Also who do you think would win in a build off? Great job on the podcast and all of your channels.

Evan Dunville: Any plans to incorperate uppostry in any projects?
