Description
Description

Construction joinery is the process of joining different pieces of wood or other materials together to form a structure or component. This can be done using various techniques, such as nailing, screwing, gluing, welding, and doweling. Construction connections are the points where two or more pieces of material are joined together. They are an essential part of any construction project, as they help to ensure that the structure is strong, stable, and able to withstand the various forces it will encounter.

History
History

Wood joinery has been used for centuries to create strong and durable structures.These joints were often hidden, as they were considered to be a sign of craftsmanship. In the 18th century, the development of steel welding revolutionized the construction industry. Steel welding allowed for the creation of strong and lightweight structures that could be easily assembled. This led to the development of new construction methods, such as prefabrication and modular construction. These foundational techniques set the stage for modern-day architectural wonders.

Future
Future

Joinery and building connection techniques are entering a transformative era. Innovations, like 3D printing and modular construction, pave the way for more efficient and sustainable building practices. Digital craftsmanship, combining traditional joinery with advanced technology, results in precision connections, maximizing material usage and reducing waste.

For instance, self-healing concrete uses bacteria to repair cracks, while magnetic connectors make furniture assembly a breeze. Advanced glues are replacing traditional fasteners in some woodwork, creating smoother finishes. Embracing both technology and sustainability, these evolving techniques promise durable, efficient, and eco-friendly structures for our growing world.

Common Questions
Common Questions
What is the difference between a joiner and a carpenter?

A joiner is a tradesperson who specializes in the fabrication and installation of woodwork, such as doors, windows, and staircases. Joiners typically work in a workshop, using hand and power tools to create precise, high-quality wood products that are ready for installation on a construction site. A carpenter is a tradesperson who works with wood and other materials to construct, install, and repair structure. Carpenters may also do some joinery work, but they are generally more involved in the overall construction process, including measuring, cutting, and fitting materials.

What is unique about Japanese wood joinery?

Japanese wood joinery is known for its use of interlocking joints that do not require nails or other fasteners to hold them together. Instead, the joints are carefully crafted to fit together perfectly, creating a strong and stable connection. Japanese wood joinery is highly prized for its beauty, durability, and craftsmanship, and is often used in the construction of temples, shrines, and other traditional buildings in Japan.

What are some of the strongest types of joinery?

Some of the strongest types of wood joinery include mortise and tenon, dowel, and biscuit joints. These joints are created using various techniques, such as inserting projections into recesses, using dowels or biscuits as connectors, and securing the joints with glue or other fasteners. These methods create strong, stable connections that can withstand significant force.

Steel Connection - Base Plate, Outer Bolts
Style and size comparison drawing of Outer Bolt Base Plate Steel Connection compared to other steel connection types

A base plate steel connection with outer bolts is a type of connection that uses bolts located on the perimeter of the column to transfer forces from the column to the foundation. The base plate is a thick steel plate that is welded to the bottom of the column. The base plate is then bolted to the foundation using a series of anchor bolts. The anchor bolts are typically located on the perimeter of the base plate, outside of the column. This type of connection is commonly used in high-rise buildings and other structures where high loads need to be transferred from the columns to the foundation.

Outer Bolt Base Plate Steel Connections are available in a range of sizes with plate widths and depths between 7.56”-30.16” (19.2-76.6 cm) and typical plate thicknesses between .47”-1.18” (12-30 mm).

Wood Joint - Scarf, Plain
Comparison drawing of Plain Scarf Wood Joint compared to similar wood connections

A plain scarf joint connects two pieces of wood end-to-end using overlapping, diagonal cuts without additional interlocking features. This slanted connection increases the surface area for bonding, offering a more robust attachment than a simple butt joint. However, because of its lack of mechanical interlocking, the plain scarf joint's strength heavily relies on the adhesive used or, occasionally, supplementary fasteners. Common in woodworking and carpentry when extending beams or planks, it is essential to ensure proper alignment during assembly. The plain scarf joint exemplifies the idea of simplicity in design, prioritizing efficient use of materials and a smooth, elongated bond.

Plain Scarf Wood Joints have full widths and scarf angles between of 10-30 Degrees. Wood joints are typically used in wood members with widths between 1.5”-3.5” (3.8-8.9 cm) and depths between of .75”-3.5” (1.9-8.9 cm).

Butt Door Hinge - Round
Style and size comparison drawing of the Butt Door Hinge (Round) compared to other door hinges

The Butt Door Hinge is a hinge consisting of two plates, one attached to the door and the other attached to the frame. These plates are connected by a pin, which allows the door to rotate around it. The hinge plates have knuckles that form the pivot point when the hinge is in use. The hinge is designed to mount on the surface of the door and frame. Because of its simple design, it has a low failure rate, making it a reliable and long-lasting hinge. However, it has a limited range of motion and is not suitable for doors that need to open at a wide angle or in both directions. They are commonly used for interior and exterior doors in residential and commercial settings.

The Butt Door Hinge (Round) has a leaf height of 3.46” (88 mm), open width of 3.46” (88 mm), and depth of .47” (12 mm). The overall pin height is 3.62” (92 mm) and the closed width is 1.97” (50 mm).

Wood Joint - Butterfly
Style and size comparison drawing of Butterfly Wood Joint compared to other wood connection types

A butterfly joint features a bowtie or butterfly-shaped inlay, set into corresponding recesses on adjoining wood pieces. Crafted to bridge and reinforce areas prone to splitting or to join two slabs, its unique shape provides both mechanical strength and visual appeal. Often found in live edge tables and hardwood floors, the butterfly joint not only prevents further cracking but also celebrates the wood's natural imperfections.

As the joint counteracts the wood's natural tendencies to split or move apart, its conspicuous shape becomes a focal point, emphasizing craftsmanship. The butterfly joint elegantly melds function with design, turning potential weaknesses into aesthetic and structural assets.

Butterfly Wood Joints have common lengths of 1”-2” (2.5-5.1 cm) and widths of .4”-.75” (1-1.9 cm). Butterfly wood joints are typically used to combine wood of various lengths and depths between of .75”-3.5” (1.9-8.9 cm).

Wood Joint - Mortise & Tenon, Open
Comparison drawing of Open Mortise & Tenon Wood Joint compared to similar wood connections

An open mortise and tenon joint features a tenon that passes entirely through the mortise, visible from both sides of the joined pieces. This design offers a strong, interlocking connection, with the tenon often protruding slightly for aesthetic appeal or further securing. Being openly displayed, this joint can be a design feature, revealing the craftsmanship and often highlighted with wedges or pins for added strength and visual interest.

Commonly found in timber framing and some furniture designs, the open mortise and tenon embodies transparency in construction. Celebrated for its structural honesty and aesthetic versatility, it showcases both the material and artisanal skill.

Open Mortise & Tenon Wood Joints have widths of 1/3 and full joint depths. Wood joints are typically used in wood members with widths between 1.5”-3.5” (3.8-8.9 cm) and depths between of .75”-3.5” (1.9-8.9 cm).
