Half lap joints must be cut exactly centered so the surfaces line up. Set your saw blade or router bit height to cut just under half way through a test piece of material exactly the same thickness of the wood being used, preferabaly a cut-off of it. Cut through one side of the board at the very end, turn the board over and make a second cut, you should now have a sliver of wood on the end of the board.

N.I. Motorider brings you his first video detailing some different types of wood joints, not exactly motorcycle related but a bit of an insight into what I do in my spare time, feel free to comment on some videos you would like to see in the future, at the minute I am designing a motorcycle gear holder for all the riders out there that have no where to keep there stuff when there off their bikes, so stay tuned for updates on that, Thanks for your support.


There are three types: the half lap, which is the simplest form of the splice as described above; the bevel lap, which uses notches that are cut on on angle, still fitting onto each other; the tabled splice, which uses cheeks that are cut with interlocking surfaces so that the 2 pieces of wood resist being pulled part; and the tapered finger slice joint, which works similarly to the finger joint.

Edge joints need nothing but glue – I have even been using the cheap white school glue by elmers and have joints that receive weight every day and are still strong after 10 years. I prefer the repair viscosity” G/Flex as it helps hold the joints together where clamping is difficult. Usually it is used to join two pieces of wood at right angles but we also use this joint on out curved knee braces. Common timber joints; there are numerous forms of wooden joints used for packing containers, however are used for exceptional purposes.

A small amount of wood fibre was still adhered to the tenon, biscuit or dowel, but for the most part the joint failed at the glue line. The natural development of a rebate is a groove, as shown here in a spline joint, which uses a separate strip of wood (the loose spline) to join two pieces of stock via a groove in each. The brace can be a metal L bracket or corner gusset (available at hardware stores), or a wood brace made from a scrap of hardwood with 45 degree mitered ends, cut as you would cut a picture frame member.

Mitre joints are not strong at all they are used for decorative effect to give a neat corner. With a 1″ thick wood chisel, now split the wood on this line until the piece is removed. Make knock-apart shelves, hinges, latches, books, chairs, cabinets, spice containers, doors, desks, and toolboxes using only wood to hold them together. Butt joints are good to use for rough or rustic work or when time is more important than looks.
