Halving Joint

exploded halving joint                    halving joint

The halving joint is mainly used in framework and is moderately difficult to construct because it consist of two channels that interlock and are bonded together with adhesives and sometimes a nail or screw is added for extra strength.

This type of woodwork joint is very useful for supporting or increasing the strength of two pieces of timber instead of just simply nailing or screwing them together.

It consists of two pieces of timber that have two channels cut half the thickness of both pieces of timber to produce a flush interlocking joint which allows the two pieces of wood to pass through each other.

This joint can be made at both ends of the timber, in the middle or at the end and the middle depending on the design and what it is needed for.
