Drawboring has been used in timber frame construction and traditional woodworking since the earliest wooden buildings were built. It is a method of tightening up the mortise and tenon joint and preventing loosening over time. It generally will outlast a glue joint as well. I did a two video tutorial on how I drawbore and will link to it below.

Pictured above is my Timber frame sawhorses which were built of green timber and draw bored about 3+ years ago. No glue and no loosening has occurred. Also pictured is my current project the timber frame treadle lathe project in which I draw bored as well. I am using dry laminated oak for this project.

Thanks for your time and interest in my projects and I hope the videos are educational for you.
