Introduction to Square Rule Joinery

Understanding square rule joinery is a multi-step process that begins with understanding the goal, the obstacles to reaching that goal, the concept that overcomes these obstacles, and finally the implementation that makes the concept a reality. You can’t simply begin cutting joinery without first knowing how and perhaps more importantly why the steps are important. This series is meant as an overview to help conceptualize the process and you may find that going through the steps multiple times sheds even more light on what is a simple but powerful concept.
