This study investigated the design, construction, testing, and performance characteristics of wall cabinets constructed with round mortise-and-tenon joints
that are suitable for use in classrooms, school libraries, and homes.
are created when a tenon (or flange) carved into one length of moulding fits into an opening, or mortise, carved into another.
The traditional joints were the mortise-and-tenon joint
Today there are reliable glues, but earlier users of mortise-and-tenon joints
had to rely on just the tight fit or various methods of using edges and pegs to keep the joints tight, either alone or to reinforce the inadequate glue that had to be used.
Also, the simulated mortise-and-tenon joint
setup may have contributed to more tenon splits than would be observed for a real joint.
The system combines the took of traditional cope and stick doors with the strength and longevity of true mortise-and-tenon joints
The presence in Eastern Mediterranean waters of a hull built using laced cordage as well as mortise-and-tenon joints
is a pivotal datum in maritime history.
In addition, all three Frenchwood style patio doors are manufactured with mortise-and-tenon joints
to help prevent panel sag and ensure smooth operation for the lifetime of the door.
Framers join timbers with a variety of mortise-and-tenon joints
, inserting the tenon (or tongue) of one piece, into the mortise (or pocket) of another, and drive wooden pegs through pre-drilled holes to lock them together.
Built with a post-and-beam pine frame and mortise-and-tenon joints
, the room uses few nails and no visible metal connectors.
The system, developed in cooperation with master woodworker Lonnie Bird, combines the look of traditional cope and stick doors with the strength and longevity of true mortise-and-tenon joints
