It’s hard to fathom, but finger joints are a relatively new joinery method for Frank Klausz, because why not just cut dovetails when you need a box? In fact, when we filmed the video below (2014), he’d cut his first finger joints but two weeks before. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t know what he’s talking about – after all, Frank has been a woodworker for longer than I’ve been alive; he hung out his Frank’s Cabinet Shop shingle in New Jersey in 1967, after learning the craft in his native Hungary and emigrating to the United States.
Below, he shows you his table saw jig for cutting perfect finger joints.
