A mortise and tenon joint is used most often to join two pieces of wood at 90 degrees and consists of two parts; the mortise hole and the tenon tongue. On the surface, it seems like a very simple joint but it is one of the strongest there is, and subsequently has been used by cabinetmakers and joiners for generations.

In this workshop, you get the chance to build a stool using this traditional joint with no screws or nails!

From this workshop, participants would be able to learn:

  1. How to plan and design a woodworking project.
  2. How to cut and join the wood together precisely.
  3. How to use power tools and machinery.

Plus, you get to walk away with your very own stool!
