Hello,

Greetings from Mexico. I have my carpenter making me a custom cherry wood desk. I want the desk to me assembled and reassembled multiple times like if I ever move.

When you buy prefabricated desks they normally have pre-threaded inserts. Because they don't sell that stuff here I would like to know what inserts do I need to buy to join two pieces of wood together? Case in point the "wall" there in the back of this desk:

Thanks in advance.

Modern fittings both for office and kitchen furniture especially European modern fittings, lend themselves to this idea very well.I am sure it will prove to be a very good choice and an inexpensive way of doing just what you want.I wish you well. Alistair

Im not really sure what you mean by European modern fittings. I know there are the inserts F type but I don't know what type I need to join two pieces together.. like this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/igtnl2kf7bz82cm/Screenshot%202014-08-18%2013.45.14.png

I would think something like this would work well. You can use a different type of bolt, such as a pan head if you need, or counter bore for the head. While the threaded inserts work also, they do not hold well in end grain, which appears like what you would need to do. There are lots of suppliers for these even amazon.
