A glue joint is where two or more boards of timber are glued together to create extra width. We can use either "biscuit joints" (small discs of timber inserted and hidden in the joint for additional strength) or "finger joints" (where the joint face is machined into interlocking profiles to create extra surface area for glue adhesion.)

Glue jointing is an industry standard practice for the supply of wide boards, worktops and shelves. We select boards with a similar grain pattern and glue and clamp them together overnight using Aliphatic resin wood glue - which is waterproof - and creates a bond stronger than the wood. We then sand the boards smooth leaving jointed boards with a barely discernible join.
