Joint Assembly Methods
WalzCraft offers various Joint Assembly Methods for joining two Face Frame Configurations together. The preferred method is WalzCraft’s Hoffman Dovetail Assembly Method (JAM1), wherever possible. Hoffman Dovetail notches are routed into the parts to be conjoined, using a Hoffman Dovetail routing machine. Glue is then applied to the mating surfaces and assembled together. Hoffman Dovetails Keys are then inserted and driven into the material with a hammer, resulting in a perfectly aligned joint locking the pieces together.
The benefit of the Hoffman Dovetail Assembly Method includes the elimination of the clamping process during production, as Hoffman Dovetail Keys are designed to provide the correct clamping pressure for proper glue joints. This Method of Assembly also requires no additional fasteners, reducing potential damage from improper placement of screws or nails during construction and installation. This method of Joint Assembly is applicable for joints anywhere ranging from 0° to 180°.
Other Joint Assembly Methods available include Domino Tenon, Dowel, Biscuit, Pocket Screw and Countersunk Screw Assemblies. Fasteners such as Dovetail Keys, Dowels, Screws, etc., will be shipped loose unless parts are Assembled by WalzCraft.Please visit our online catalog specifications for Joint Assembly Methods here or contact our Customer Support Team today for additional information.
