A professionally made bookshelf, entertainment center, or chest of drawers is only as sturdy as the fasteners holding it together! This program introduces the types and uses of various fasteners in building cabinets and furniture.
Illustrating the many features and properties of wood screws – including head configurations, types of thread, and anti-corrosion coatings – the program also explains nail and pin weights as well as the three styles of basic cabinet construction (box, edge, and end fixing).
Other topics include varieties of pre-manufactured boards and the basics of biscuit joinery. Onscreen instructors provide demonstrations and advice.
