I preserve listening to about how pointless it’s to connect end-grain on dovetails, and FWW movies aren’t any exception. I’ve seen end-grain to side-grain joints maintain as much as my makes an attempt to interrupt by hand, however a protracted sufficient fulcrum would break the joint.
Simply right this moment this video “Glue Myths: 1. Finish grain” by Patrick Sullivan popped up on my YouTube ideas, and I’d like for Mike and BVD, and all or any others to look at and touch upon:
I don’t suppose the identical outcomes are doable except the mating surfaces are properly ready, and I don’t suppose I’d contemplate end-grain-to-end-grain if I might scarf-joint or not less than add a dowel. (Does that make me a science denier?)
Personally, I’ve all the time glued finish grain on dovetails, for 2 causes:
- Each glue floor helps
- I all the time hand reduce, and swelling the end-grain helps any gappy baseline.
I’m at the moment engaged on a set of built-in cabinets and hearth encompass created from walnut. The total piece will span a complete 18-foot lengthy wall. The highest of the cabinets will meet the ceiling through shop-made moldings, together with a 4-inch large cove molding. My downside is that I want an 18 ft lengthy molding. I don’t have inventory that lengthy, and it could be actually unwieldy to work it even when I did. So I’m confronted with making it from shorter lengths. My query is, are you able to suggest an end-to-end joint that’s each safe and comparatively invisible for this software? I’ve primarily seen folks use a forty five diploma overlap, which I discover very tough to make invisible.
