Bridle Joints

V. Ryan 2002 - 2004

These two BRIDLE JOINTS are used when a light frame is needed and strength is not the main requirement. For example, a picture frame. One part of the joint fits into the other part and is glued permanently in position. The angled bridle joint can be used a a substitute for a mortise and tenon joint, again if strength is not important.
