Drawboring is a joinery technique that produces strong, durable joints without need for glue or clamps.
The drawbore pin is an essential tool used in the traditional woodworking technique known as drawboring. Crafted from stainless steel, this tool is designed to aid in creating strong and durable joints without relying on glue or clamps.
Drawboring is a method of joinery that involves driving a tapered pin through a hole in a mortise and into a corresponding hole in a tenon. This intentional offset or "drawbore" creates a powerful mechanical joint by pulling the joint tightly together. The drawbore pin is specifically designed to facilitate this process.
The stainless steel construction of the drawbore pin ensures its durability and resistance to corrosion, allowing it to withstand the rigors of woodworking projects. Its tapered shape allows for easy insertion into the holes, and its length provides ample reach for driving the pin through the joint.
By using the drawbore technique, woodworkers can create joints that are not only strong but also resistant to loosening over time. This method has been employed for centuries in various woodworking disciplines, including furniture making, timber framing, and boat building. It eliminates the need for clamps or adhesives, resulting in a clean and efficient joinery process.
