Joinery Shootout

Fine Woodworking Magazine from January/February 2009 had a feature article on joinery that caught my eye. From page 36 to 41 there are many photographic examples of joints with helpful information for each. Specific applications are covered for 18 different joints, and each joint sample was tested for strength. The article "Joinery Shootout" was written by Douglas Moore and Thomas McKenna. Videos of the joints being crushed are available for online viewing at
