Joinery

 

Joinery is a part of woodworking that involves joining together two or more pieces of wood to create a structure. Modern construction techniques frequently rely solely on mechanical brackets and fasteners or pneumatic nail guns to form a joint; however, these can weaken over time with seasonal changes in wood. Traditional wood joinery involves joining wood using some form of interlocking joint. Some wood joints employ fasteners, bindings, or adhesives, while others use only wood elements.

 

The use of traditional woodworking joinery is the very essence of fine woodworking. Wood structures that incorporate the use of traditional joinery far outlast similar structures that use only butt joints held with nails or screws. At Creative Landscape Accents each project is handcrafted using old-fashioned joinery techniques and construction standards while incorporating the benefits of advanced hardware, fasteners and adhesives.

 

Complex projects require numerous joinery techniques  with each designed to meet differing structural requirements. Some of the more common joints used at Creative Landscape Accents to handcraft everlasting landscape decor are shown below:
