Tongue & Dado Joinery
This versatile joint makes it easy to create strong and sturdy cases and drawers.
When building a case, you want the joinery to be both strong and easy to make. Tongue and dado joinery is a good example with a few advantages. The interlocking parts make aligning the case pieces during assembly a snap. And it provides a good amount of glue surface for a long-lasting connection. Another benefit of this joint is that, with a few adjustments, it works equally well on both cases and drawers.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
