Here I demonstrate how I do lock joinery on the table saw. Love this joint for fast and easy drawer fronts that will withstand a lot of abuse.

Another great tutorial video! I use the same joinery on all my shop drawers for the reasons you stated. BUT I have a question: why don’t you use the same joint for the drawer backs?

To be honest I never really thought about it. It would serve the same purpose as the dadoes that I put in so I’ve always been used to doing that which is why I always stuck with it. Using the lock joints in the front provides stability as well as the ability to put the drawer front flush with the sides, however, I do not feel it necessary for the back to be flush with the sides so putting in a dado seems to fit the purpose that I need. Something that think about in the future though. Thanks for the kind words and thanks for watching.

Just curious as I always have used the lock joint on the front and back.

Always enjoy your vids.

If you ever get near Tulsa, let me know so you can come visit.
