I don’t want to clutter up the site with too many categories. But does anyone else think it would be useful to have a forum for joinery? Where we could swap information on various joints and methods?

+1! How about dropping Non-shop talk and adding this.

CL810, Amen! As an advanced novice, I can use all the knowledge for improved woodworking I can absorb. Someone start with beveled box joints; useful for step stool suppoting leg panels. I’ve made a jig but haven’t successfully made the cuts for leg to seat/top joint.

I’m indifferent. Book 1 of Tage Frid Teaches Woodworking covers joinery pretty well. The 2% of joinery that isn’t in the book probably isn’t worth a forum. I suppose there is the aspect of how to cut various joints but that would seem to fall under Skill Share, Designing or Jigs.

Yeah, I imagine Skill Share would be an appropriate place for joinery. To tell you the truth, I hardly ever browse the forums individually; I just use the Pulse or go to the Forum page which displays all the threads. I imagine that’s how most people use them.

One of your fellow Portland residents wrote a great book on joinery called “The Complete Illustrated Guide to Joinery by Gary Rogowski ” Gary has a great school in portland also.

Sorry I think there are lots of resources on joinery . I think a forum on finishing would be more useful since questions about finishing goes on and on.

Sounds like there isn’t much demand for a joinery forum. No worries.

That Japanese joinery book looks like something to pick up. I’ve never even seen a picture of a joint that looks that complicated.

I usually just use the pulse page and go by the title of the post to decide what I want to read or look at.
