Have been doing some exercises from the apprentice books lately. I was the last apprentice that my boss took on, but figure if we ever do hire another it’s good to know your joints, my boss never bothered to show me…. So I don’t know what you would call this in English, “tenon et mortaise avec fausse coupe pour battue et rainure” in french. The pics are front and back. I really love doing this kind of work, it’s pure joinery, the way so many things used to be assembled.

joinery looks nice and tight. looks like you’re making great progress as an apprentice.

I’m not sure what we’d call that joint in English, but I think if you said you were making a tenon with offset shoulders people would know what you mean… But that’s no less of a mouthful!!

keep up the good work, mon ami!!

Doesn’t look like your boss needed to show you. You did a pretty remarkable job on your own.
