3-way cylinder joint

Postby Simon Hartley » Sat Apr 07, 2018 10:32 pm

I am looking for a way to join three turned pieces together to form a corner. I am familiar with the interlocked mortice-and tenon joints used in a post-and rung chair, but is there another way? It won't be under as much strain as a chair joint, so I wondered if a 3-way mitre might be possible.

Hi Simon, you could try binding (a la cane furniture) but I wouldn't hold much store in a three way mitre relying on glue alone. have a look at how it's bound here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=By2OHupAdJM this method can be done on a 3 way joint. Post your results on here when you've done!

Hi Davie,
I hadn't considered binding; good on bamboo maybe, but isn't really the look I'm after. One option I had considered is to have a half-lap joint with the third member going through as a tenon. Or just have square-section at the joints; make everything so much simpler.
