Woody Woodworking

and its tools

Woodworking Inlay – No Talking

2 min read

My lungs needed a break, so just wood sounds this week. Well, wood and tool sounds. Anyway, bow tie, dutchman joint, dutchman key, or eyesore. There are a million different names for these types of inlays. I generally just call them wood bow ties, or bow tie joint though. What do they do? Well, their wedge shape helps prevents cracks from splitting open any further. Although these here are largely just for looks. If you want a little more explanation, I’ll be doing a commentary version in the next couple of weeks where I will explain way more than you’d ever want to know. So be careful what you wish for.
