Woodworking Finger Joint - Woodworking Techniques - In this post we will be looking at the woodworking finger joint ( also referred to as the box joint ) and woodworking techniques that come along with them. As promised well start with the finger joint. A woodworking finger joint is when you have two pieces of wood cut into a shape much like two interlocking sets of fingers. They are simple to do and very tight fitting. To achieve this most woodworkers use a electrically powered routers.
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.
So that bookcase you just passed in the store doesn’t look all that hard, basically a box: top, bottom, sides, backing board, mount some shelves, some molding. You could do that! (Besides, isn’t your oldest boy about the same age you were when you made that napkin holder? This would be a killer thing to do as a family project! Might help get his nose out of that X-Box.)
