The Right Adhesive + Craftsmanship = Perfect Wood Fingerjointing

Fingerjointing lumber is an art that requires both precise craftsmanship and the right adhesive. The adhesive must be able to penetrate the wood, and the temperature must be high enough to allow the adhesive to form a strong bond. In addition, the timber itself cannot have a moisture content higher than 15 percent. Provided the fingerjoints are cut precisely and fit together without gaps, the adhesive will not only bond the materials, but play a role in moisture and heat resistance.

No matter how good the adhesive is, however, it can’t make up for a poorly cut dry joint. Apart from the preparatory grinding of the cutters to match the hook gauge, they must be carefully aligned, and the operator must be sure that they do not move out of alignment. The combination of careful machining and the right adhesive will ensure a professional finish and a study bond.
