1. Blind mortise and tenon
Since we have covered the basics already in Course Eén, we can jump straight to what Course Twee is about: traditional wood joinery. After having acquired a general understanding of traditional wood joinery, you will start making your first joint: the blind mortise and tenon.
2. Through mortise and tenon
After having gained some experience with the blind mortise and tenon, we will do a slightly more challenging version of the mortise and tenon: the through mortise and tenon. Joinery requires different tools than we had used in Course Eén; you will learn to use the chisel and the dovetail saw in this course.
3. Box joint
The third joint you will learn is again a little more challenging than the previous one. This time it’s not a mortise and tenon though, but a box joint. The box joint is cut in a slightly different way; you will learn a new technique with the chisel.
4. Dovetail joint
The final joint you will learn is the much esteemed dovetail joint. The dovetail joint is the most difficult among the basic joints and is considered a symbol of traditional craftsmanship.
By now, you should have figured that creating joinery is a far more sophisticated endeavor than anything we did in Course Eén. As such, Course Twee presses you to learn to work overall in a more accurate and refined way.
