Introduction: Invisible Glue Joints: Miter Joint (werkplaatsidc)
In this instructable we will show you how to make an invisible wood glue connection without using a lot of (difficult) materials. The connection we talk about is specially for small connections.
What do you need?
- a drill (2 mm)
- wood glue (we use pattex express)
- two pieces you want to connect
- a saw
Step 1: Sew
saw the pieces in a miter of 45°
Step 2: Clamps
To clamp the two pieces later on we go for a fitting. Cut two pieces of waste wood in mitter and glue each piece on a straight piece of wood. Clamp it and wait until the glue dries.
Step 3: Drill
Drill holes. The holes have to become on the same place. You can use a tool to know where to sew, but we choose to drill in the middle of the surface. Just sign the two diagonals and take the intersection point. Now drill perpendicular to this point. (If you want to be sure, use a drill press)
Step 4: Shorten the Toothpick
Short now in the toothpick so that it has a length which is slightly shorter than the depth of the two holes together.
Step 5: Put Together
Add glue on the both surfaces and the holes. Put the toothpick in one hole and put the pieces together.
Step 6: Clamp
Clamp the glued pieces in place using the clips that we have made the first step.
Wait until it's dry.
Step 7: Finish
When it's dry, you become a solid wood connection.
