The Jointing Techniques & Furniture module introduce students to the basic jointing techniques commonly used in furniture and joinery and to the fundamental principles of furniture construction using various materials, with particular emphasis on simple carcase, frame, door, drawer construction and fitting methods. The module concentrates on jointing techniques as applied to basic furniture construction.

Assessment projects: Frame, Table and drawer, Trinket box. Reflective journals are used with each coursework project and the learning is scaffold, whereby as the year progresses the students build on whatever skills they have already learned with joints and projects become progressively more difficult to construct.
