For this assignment, we had to create five different types of wood joints: finger joint, rabbet joint, mortise and tenon joint, miter joint, and butt joint with dowels. And the type of wood I used was Poplar 1” x 10” x 30” and 3 1″ dowels.
*Then the with the cut up Poplar Poplar 1” x 10” x 30” of 10 pieces, I sanded the edges to smooth it out.
- FINGER JOINTS AKA BOX JOINTS
2. RABBET JOINT
3. MORTISE AND TENON JOINT
For the Mortis and Tenon joints, I marked the the areas I had to chisel. The one above is the tenon part of the joint.
This is the mortis part of the joint.
4. MITER JOINT
For this joint, I leveled the band saw at 45 degrees so that each joint could join together and make it a 90 degrees joint.
5. Butt Joint w. Dowels
Using an awe, I marked the wood with three middle points where I would drill holes for the dowels by using a drill press. To get the exact points onto the other dowel, I used pins to mark it. Then in each hole, I put in pre-made dowels.
