The best wood joining systems to consider for your next project
Whether you’re looking to create permanent joints for a kitchen, bathroom, table or temporary joints for signage, it’s important to ensure you have the right joinery solution.
What is joinery?
In its simplest form, joinery is connecting two or more pieces of wood and that could be as easy as gluing two pine boards together. At its most difficult, it requires the joiner to hide seams using complex tools and angles because they are visible and may be used in specialist kitchens or cabinetry. Even though they cut corners physically, they cannot cut corners metaphorically. The jobs have to be perfect and cannot be quick and easy finishes.
How has joinery traditionally been done?
Wood joining is a specialist trade. Joinery is about tying together mathematics, precision and attention to detail. While carpenters install timber products on a job site, joiners can begin working on a project beforehand. They can make cabinet doors, shelves and frames ready for installation. Joinery also includes timber frames for windows and doors, tables, furniture legs, bathroom vanities, kitchen cupboards, bookshelves, desks, wardrobes and custom designs.
Joinery has used traditional methods of fixing pieces of wood together by using glue, nails and screws. In some complex joints, the strength is found by fusing joints together with multiple methods. While many of the wood joining techniques have different names for each join or method, you’re probably most familiar with “tongue and groove”, which is like how a floating floorboard clicks together.
What should you use for your next job?
Wood joining technology has come a long way over the years and new joinery products offer an affordable and durable solution to your needs. The invisible fixings, strong and secure supports, connectors and screws all make the assembly process cost effective and less labour intensive which means you’ll get the job done faster.
