Performed at the end or in the middle of a room, the mid-wood assembly remains a good initiation. Its constituents are similar to bastard tenons or nicks.

As the name suggests, this classic nesting consists of notching pieces of wood on half their thickness.
They can thus be glued, and possibly reinforced by trunnions to ensure better rigidity.
The mid-wood assembly in L is easy to make but is not designed to withstand very significant lateral stresses.
The assembly half-wood cross or T can be done using a router (to save time) or by hand (opposite).

Drawing of parts to be removed for a mid-timber assembly

Using a square or a truscan, draw precisely with the pencil or the cutter the parts to remove on each piece of wood.

Cut out slices of wood to remove at the same time to assemble halfway through

Make a series of cuts parallel to the saw to the back in the part to remove, being careful not to exceed the line of leveling.

Remove the slats of wood to assemble then half-wood

Remove the waste with a chisel.
Proceed in small steps.
Then turn the coin over and do the same from the other song.

Remove wood slats with wide chisel or small plane

For a neat finish, use a wide chisel or small plane so as to obtain cheeks and a background of very regular and flat cuts.

Keep two pieces together halfway through the drying process

Assemble the two pieces after pasting the bottom of the cuts.
They must fit perfectly.
Keep them in place while drying.
