Wood Working

    Keywords: Equipment

The totality of methods which could be applied to wood in every form, e.g.:

  • mortising two pieces of wood
  • glueing
  • connecting two pieces via a nut and a plug; see drawing:

This should be two pieces of wood the left one has got a nut(aka female piece) the right one has got a plug(aka male piece).


The effect of such a linkage is that it is more stable than glueing two pieces of wood together plainly. As this is only ment to be explanatory to an specific article on senseis, the interested reader is pointed out to do a search with a search engine. Keywords: faq + rec.woodworking.

PatG: Given that you are glueing long grain to long grain and presumably clamping properly, no mechanical joints are needed as the glue joint should be stronger than the surrounding wood. Mortise and tenon, dovetail or dowelled joints could be used for looks but my gut feeling is that they would detract from the aesthetic appeal of the board.
