Joinery craftsmanship has been around for years. In fact I like to refer to joinery craftsmanship as old school carpentry. The ability to join two pieces of wood together with-out using any nails or screws as fasteners. Joinery craftsmanship years back required much skill and a lot of work was preformed by hand. Our forefathers did not have the modern power tools such as a drill press, that we have today. As we look back at some of the great joinery our forefathers left behind, only spurred on more refined methods of joinery.
As the necessity of furniture for the home arose, our forefathers took on the challenge. Even today because of hand crafted furniture, you will find some great pieces of furniture that still looks great and maintains the joinery craftsmanship of it’s time. You will find things such as old dinning room tables and chair sets that are still as beautiful as the day they were built. The crafting of a beautiful hutch, chest of drawers, dressers and bed sets still can be found.
The carpenter or craftsman himself would have had his own tool box completely built from the skills of joinery.
The art of joinery craftsmanship has been around for years and will continue to be around for years to come.
Mastering the art of joinery is something to be very proud of as you learn to do more and more.
