Once learned, these techniques allow a woodworker to build just about anything. From the workshop of Marc Spagnuolo, creator of The Wood Whisperer website and host of its popular YouTube channel, Essential Joinery teaches the time-tested methods for creating woodworking’s most fundamental joints. Rather than working solely by hand or machine, Spagnuolo teaches woodworkers how to choose the most sensible joinery method for the task at hand while providing some additional techniques and styles for each joint.
