Plywood Core veneer Lay-up Joint Types butt joints
Plywood Core Lay-up Veneer jointer joins the ends of veneer strips into either rolls or fixed length strips. Joints can be either finger joints or butt joints. The Butt JOint makes useable pieces of veneer from off-cuts that would have otherwise been waste.
- Precision dies for perfect jointing
- For production of rolls or fixed lengths
- Several joint designs
- Suitable for thick or thin veneers
- Available in several widths
A butt joint is a technique in which two pieces of core veneer are joined by simply placing their ends together without any special shaping. The name ‘butt joint’ comes from the way the veneer material is joined together. The butt joint is the simplest joint to make since it merely involves cutting the wood veneer to the appropriate length and butting them together. It is also the weakest because unless some form of reinforcement is used it relies upon glue alone to hold it together. Because the orientation of the wood veneer usually presents only one end to long grain gluing surface, the resulting joint is inherently weak
The butt joint is a very simple joint to construct. Core veneers are simply docked (cut off) at the right angle and have a required length. One veneer will be shorter than the finished size by the thickness of the adjacent veneer. The thickness of the two adjacent veneer must be taken into consideration.
