Manufacture of finger joints
Literature: “Finger-Jointed Wood Products”
Five steps are basic in manufacturing finger-jointed wood products:
(1) Selection and preparation of material
(2) Formation of joint profile
(3) Application of adhesive
(4) Assembly of joint
(5) Curing of adhesive.
There are variations within these steps, depending on the particular system used, but all are necessary and important in producing good joints.
