A flaring tenon, or tongue (shaped like a bird's tail spread), and a mortise, or socket, into which it fits tightly, making an interlocking joint between two pieces which resists pulling a part in all directions except one.
A very strong joint in which a tapered, fan-shaped â€œpinâ€ on one part of a project slips into a matching recess on the mating part. Dovetail joints are usually formed with a special router bit, and most frequently used in drawer and cabinet construction.
A manner of making joints by having a series of projections in one piece fitting into corresponding recesses in another piece. A joint in carpenter work. It is a poor joint in timber where much stress has to be provided for. The shape of the tongue of the joint is like that of the spread tail of a dove.
the combination of a flaring tenon and the mortise into which it tightly fits to make an interlocking joint between two pieces (as in wood); dovetail neck-joints are favored by traditional guitar makers. DREADNOUGHT: large-body, thick-waisted acoustic guitar pioneered by Frank H. Martin and Harry Hunt in the early 1900s; today, the term is used generically to describe that body style.
A term used to describe a joining process of two pieces of material. Both pieces have wing-shaped notches that interlock. Generally known as the strongest joint typically used in furniture and cabinet drawers.
1) Method of joining boards at right angles by interlocking wedge-shaped mortises and tenons. Often used in drawer construction. 2) A butterfly-shaped inset used to join boards lengthwise in table tops and floors.
A joinery method used for joining two perpendicular parts, commonly used for making very strong joints in wooden drawer boxes. One part is machined with inverted "V" shaped projections (dovetail profile) and fitted into another part that is machined with the opposite "V" shaped cutouts.
This joint connects two pieces of wood. One piece has a flared head while the adjoining piece has a flared cut. The resulting joint is very strong. Look for dovetails as signs of good quality and long lasting durability, particularly on drawers.
A fan-shaped tenon that when fitted into a corresponding mortise forms a tight interlocking joint. Known for their strength and durability, dovetail drawers are examples of high-quality drawer construction.
A cabinet-maker's joint, fitting two pieces of wood together at right angles, in which a series of wedge-shaped projections (the 'dove's tail', hence the name) in one piece, fit into corresponding slots in the other. It is a strong joint, especially resistant to outward pull, hence often found on drawers. A Half-dovetail has one side (of both the protruding dovetail and the slot part) angled and the other straight; a Lapped-dovetail does not extend all the way through on one surface.
Woodworking joint whose ends are fanned out like a Dove's tail due to the recessed lots cut into the board, which are called mortises and the projection that fit into the mortises, which are called tenons.
Method of joining boards at right angles by interlocking wedge-shaped tenons and mortises. Generally used in drawer construction. Also, a butterfly-shaped inset used to join boards lengthwise in table tops and floors.
A flaring machined or hand cut slot that is also slightly tapered toward one end. Cut into the upper surface of barrels and sometimes actions, the dovetail accepts a corresponding part on which a sight is mounted. Dovetail slot blanks are used to cover the dovetail when the original sight has been removed or lost; this gives the barrel a more pleasing appearance and configuration.
Dovetail is a development toolkit for building database-backed websites in Java. It is specifically designed to address some serious problems which arise in trying to build a reliable, testable website with server-side Java and a relational database.
