About the Event
This talk is on joinery, joints and what they mean to woodworkers, whether professional or amateur.
Joinery can enable you to create a vast range of structures using wood alone to unite the components whether temporarily or permanently together. In this talk Paul will talk about the joinery we’ve relied on for centuries with demonstrations to help woodworkers better understand the concepts in a visual way. He wants this understanding to nurture our self reliance and the development of skill to enhance workmanship and creativity.
Paul will discuss the important elements of accuracy and sharpness with his own insights on how to achieve the standards we strive for in exemplary joinery. The tools he uses are both modern and old. Tools that survived alongside the joinery. As always, Paul will be demonstrating as well as talking. He will have his workbench, tools and equipment to visually show what he is talking about.
