Actually cutting a finger joint ( box joint ) is not as difficult as you first may think. In fact a lot of Do It Yourself stores keep special newbie stencils or jigs for creating your own box joints. I keep on referring to box joints and this can be related to the actual history of the finger joint. centuries ago ( long before the introduction of cardboard and other man made materials ) produce for commercial areas like markets had to be kept and transported in low quality wood boxes. The woodworking finger joint was commonly used in these boxes to hold them together.
Successful Wood Projects Start With A Good Woodworking Plan - Wood is one of the most widely used natural materials in the world. Woodworking is basically carving, sawing, fastening together blocks of wood to make everything from furniture to artwork. Wood is known to be one of the most versatile and durable craft materials and the use of wood dates back to thousands of years.
A lot of people who I talk to always seem to get confused between the woodworking finger joint and the dovetail joint - these are by no means the same. Dovetails always tend to have much less fingers than the woodworking finger joint and this has obvious dis-advantages. Dovetail joints are also a lot more difficult to produce than finger joints, I find finger joints a more easier alternative to dovetails.
