The butt joint is the most basic and simple joint to construct because it is made with only two pieces of timber that are butted together at the ends, this also means that the joint isn’t very strong in fact it is the weakest joint that is used in woodwork but it is also the easiest to make. woodworking video woodworking websites woodworking beginner woodworking projects

This joint is held together with glue, nails, screws or dowel but can also be secured with a combination of methods to greatly increase its strength and aesthetics. woodworking video woodworking websites woodworking beginner woodworking projects

Because the butt joint is so weak and not very aesthetically pleasing it is only used in basic woodwork projects. The strength of this woodwork joint can be greatly increased by adding a rectangular or triangular block of wood in the corner to increase the surface area where adhesives are applied. woodworking video woodworking websites woodworking beginner woodworking projects
