SHOULDER / REBATE / LAPPED JOINT

V. Ryan 2003 =2008

 

The shoulder or lapped joint is very common and is used for furniture and box constructions such as jewellery boxes.

 

 

 

The joint to above is a simple lapped joint. The shoulder can be seen clearly, this is usually planed using a rebate/shoulder plane or combination plane. This type of joint is often seen as a corner joint.

   
   

The jewellery box seen below has a base which sits inside a rebate or shoulder which has been planed / cut into each of the sides. The base has been pushed into the shoulder and this means it is level with the sides.
