Adhesives in Woodworking: Tips for Finger Jointing

If you’re a manufacturer in the woodworking industry, you’re likely familiar with the reliable, age-old process of finger jointing.

When manufacturing wood products, such as furniture, cabinets, windows or doors, we know how important it is that your finished product is nothing short of durable. When two pieces of wood are cut in a rectangular pattern complementary of each other so that the joint is glued and interlocks, the wood is of high strength and durability.

To achieve excellent finger jointing, you’ll need to consider several factors, which include:

• Adhesive selection
• Wood and adhesive temperatures
• Wood type
• Tightness of joint
• Adhesive application
• Squeeze pressure
• Handling of stock
• Storage
