Why Commission your furniture #3

#3 The way its put together.  We call this joinery. I often refer to joinery as wood matrimony as you are making two to one.  Most mass produced furniture does not use traditional joinery because it requires skill and time (and perhaps they don’t want it to last).  I create traditional dovetail joints and mortise and tenon joints.  They are enduring, honest, sound, beautiful, and they work!  Proper joinery is an investment.
