The dovetail corner joint is renowned for its tensile strength, which means that it is incredibly resistant to being pulled apart, which is an important factor when working with wood due to its nature to swell and shrink.
They are mostly used in boxes, draws, cabinets and log houses.
The dovetail joint is one of the oldest wooden joints known with examples seen from the times of the Ancient Egyptians.
A dovetail joint is made by one piece having ‘pins’ cut and the other piece of wood has ‘tails’. When pieced together they are almost impossible to pull apart.
Good dovetail joints are difficult to produce and are often a sign of quality craftsmanship. The cuts have to be very precise to work, as they should.
They are also an extremely attractive joint and are often one that one would want to be visible due to its aesthetic qualities.
So why do we build our garden rooms using dovetail joints?
Our garden rooms are built using the highest quality in craftsmanship and design. We want our garden rooms to last so that you are investing in a building that will last. We are also very aware of aesthetic design details like corners and you cant get much better than a traditional dovetail joint.
Because we use solid wood to construct our walls and nothing else we have the luxury of showing off what we do best as well as providing a classic design feature.
The highest level of Craftsmanship is always at the heart of everything that we do and we believe that it should be intrinsic within the structure of the building. When you buy a garden room from Spacetwo you can see as well as know that you are buying the best.
