Classic Joinery Essentials

In this plan you'll learn the secrets to a perfect-fitting mortise and tenon, no-fuss bridle joinery, and trouble-free half laps.

As an experienced woodworker, joinery is something you know very well. But you also know that technique can always be improved upon. In our Classic Joinery Technique Collection, we’ll get to the heart of three kinds of joints — mortise and tenon, bridle, and half lap. You’ll learn the best tips and tricks for completing each one.



What You Get:

  • 8 printable (digital) pages of great techniques for mortise and tenon, bridle, and half lap joints.
  • Over 40 step-by-step illustrations and photographs.

Note: After your purchase, you will receive an email containing a PDF attachment of your purchased plan, as well as instructions for logging in to download the plan and access any other associated files and videos, which will all be located on this page.
