Wood joinery is one of the most basic concepts in woodworking. If one didn't have the ability to join two pieces of wood together in a solid fashion, all woodworking pieces would be sculptures, carved out of a single piece of wood. However, with the many varied types of wood joinery, a woodworker has a number of different joints in his arsenal from which to choose, based upon the project. These joints on either side are some that I created in the wood workshop, hands on work helped me further explore the possibilities and skill set required to create such joints. My experience was enriching while working on the wooden frame, which later I thought of converting into a wall clock.
