Interlocking Joint

November 19th, 2017

Interlocking is a way for joiners and carpenters to create a joint in timber or particleboard.  Each component edge is cut to fit against or into another adjoining piece to prevent displacement and add strength and durability. The joint must either be in compression, pinned, glued or keyed, or a combination of any of these strengthening processes after furniture is assembled.
