Japanese Joinery – Mortises & Tenons

$155.00

In this one day class we will explore the many variations of the most fundamental woodworking joint, the mortise and tenon!

Such variations will be: blind, through, wedged, pinned, tusked and the fox.

The day will be filled with demonstrations, discussion of proportions along with applications and of course a lot of hands on practice!

The practice time will focus on the through mortise and tenon. You will take away a firm grasp of this most central joint.
