The Knuckle and Rule Joints with David Charlesworth

Product Reference: DCDVD9

David offers his original methods for tackling the intricacies and careful fitting of these fascinating joints.

The Knuckle and Rule joints are two articulated joints that serve as hinges for the drop leaves found on sofa tables and Pembroke tables. The Knuckle joint is a shop made hinge with wooden barrels turning on a metal pin. These allow the supports to extend and fold away in an elegant manner. Rule joints employ special hinges made with one leaf longer than the other, with the countersunk holes on the face opposite the barrel. David offers his original methods for tackling the intricacies and careful fitting of these fascinating joints. David Charlesworth has taught woodworking since 1973 and is widely respected in England as a writer for Furniture & Cabinetmaking Magazine. His specialty is getting the most out of hand tools in precise and original ways.
