What is the most important key to making your woodworking projects more craftsmanlike, attractive, durable, and valuable? The answer lies in the quality of their joints. Most books assume you know how to make a perfect joint and which one to choose, so they give you minimal information. But you need to make sure the joints do what they're supposed to. The introduction to each style is followed by a checklist of reasons to select it: halving joints; dowel and biscuit joints; mortise-and-tenon joints; miter joints; housing joints; dovetail joints; and others. Once you learn what they look like and what they're used for, you can practice constructing each joint--with close-ups of six tool use techniques you'll apply to hundreds of woodworking projects. Test your skills with four projects where joinery is the star, including a glass-topped table, mirror frame, bookcase, and breakfast tray.
