Welcome to Rethink Woodworking™ where we help woodworkers and carpenters incorporate “knock-down” functionality into their projects via our Project Examples, Tutorials, Templates, Jigs, Cutlists, SketchUp Files, CNC Files, Patented Hardware and 24/7 access to a community of others that have similar interests. It’s About KnockDown™
Woodworking, for the most part, is about attaching one board to another aka “joinery”. Most traditional joinery methods (screws, mortise & tenon, pocket holes, biscuits, Dominos, adhesives, metal brackets….) assume those boards will be permanently attached to each other. That’s great but what if your woodworking must be done in a basement, an attic or in a condo kitchen?; or maybe you are a pro/semi-pro that needs to ship your finished projects via UPS/FedX; or when the project is a seasonal item (furniture, gazebo, screen room…) and needs to be tucked away for the winter?
At Rethink Woodworking™ It’s About KnockDown™! It’s about building projects in manageable “components”. Those components can then be “dry-fit” for testing. Once all the bugs are worked out the project can be disassembled where any finishing touches (sanding, routering, staining…) are much easier to apply and then those components can be transported, shipped via UPS/FedX, placed in storage or whatevered AND we can still reassemble/disassemble an unlimited number of times without loss of structural integrity. In fact, the US Patent Office agreed and granted me two US Patents for the Threaded Tenon Joinery method found in our project tutorials.
