Through mortise and tenon trestle base with wedged English walnut salvaged from NE Portland, held together with a wedged peg. Incense cedar finished with locally made product Landark. Fir reclaimed from an old industrial building in the Pearl District.

Différents modèle d'assemblement des pièces pour former un angle droit. Les assemblages s'accordent aux forces qu'ils doivent contrer. Les emboitements avec forme/contre formes peuvent supporter plus de forces. Les pièces seulement posées les unes sur les autres ne peuvent tenir que si les forces s'additionnent comme par exemple le shéma en haut ,à droite où la pièce tient car elle s'associe à la gravité.
A little bit more fine tuning and this joint will be ready to go together. 7 more to go, but that's just the start of this piece. It will get a lot more complicated. Note the ruler for scale @emmajenningsartist
Dating all the way back to Neolithic times, the mortise and tenon is the oldest wood joint known to mankind. While the specific provenance of the joint is unknown, I'm willing to bet the inventor wasn't a virgin. NSFWIn the thousands of years since, craftspeople have developed an almost absurd
