Joinery Test

31 Mar

I haven’t made any joints in a while, and I also haven’t seriously used my new tools, so I made these as practice. All the joints I’m using are simple variations of the lap joint and I’m using them to locate all the pieces. The simplest way would be to just glue everything together, as some have suggested. The next easiest way would be to drill holes and bolt the pieces together, as it was drawn in the initial concept. Personally I feel that joining the wood in this way is the most honest way to build this particular table, considering the history of the wood.

The first one below is shouldered for the connection between the rail and the table top piece, and the next joint below is for the rail and all the middle pieces of the table top.
