What is a cabinet-maker, if not a skilled maker of joints? The colour of the wood, or perhaps a near-perfect surface finish, may e the initial things that draw our attention to a piece of  work, but it isn’t very long before we slide open a drawer or begin peering inside a cupboard to see and feel the quality of the joints.

This is hardly surprising, because many people consider joint -making to e the true measure of a crafts-man, not least because cutting fine joint reqires in- depth knowledge of one’s material and degree of proficiency with a wide variety of proficiency with a wide variety of handtools or machines.

In addition, there is the choice of  joint , which reveals something about a wood-worker’s level of experience. A joint must, first all, be functional to provide sufficinet strength, but it should also be in keeping with the overall style of the piece for which it is intended-in short, it must bethe rigt joint for the job.
