Dogbones! T-Bones! Sniglets! If you’ve ever done any amount CNC design for wood joinery, you know that the rounded inside corners left behind by the router bit can be a struggle. But there are three different types of fillets you can use have them join up nice and square. Learn how to design them in this video.

What is the software used ?

waterup380 says:

why not get a chisel or a tool for that problem

Risenga_Junior says:

Thumbs up dude, AWESOME staff

Mark Moran says:

Great video, but those are all fugly and incredibly inelegant. I went from electronics to CNC to traditional woodworking. CNC routers are amazing, fun machines, but they are not suited for joinery.

Who the fuck uses inches?

Sebastiaan Mollema says:

Thumbs up guys!

nexus01gr says:

Would the T-bone connection with a couple of split dowels filling the voids be considered "fine" woodworking? I wonder…

Harry Collins says:

I have just watched several of your videos and I quite enjoyed them, is it possible you could let me know what desktop lathe you use please? I am interested in what make it is, many thanks

Ev3thing says:

?!?!?'? Why not use a chisel, if you can afford a cnc-ruter you probably can afford one of the better chisels

Jeroen Cardienaal says:

does anyone know what drawing program he uses, i am looking for an easy 2D drawing program to work with and that one looks like a good one to start with.

josh mcgee says:

great video and now I really want the book

Gary Slovinsky says:

I have to admit, the last option looked the most interesting.

Quick Look n Teardown says:

I use laser cutter, and I don't have this problem…. but I have lot of other problems

Wolf Guard Miestwin says:

Watching those numbers on the caliper… damn. The imperial system is brain dead retarded.

Stuff With Kirby says:

Great video. It was nice and short and the fusion tutorial parts helped explain it.

Michael Hursh says:

if the wood is 1/2 or 3/4 if you are making a pocket where another piece doesnot have to through, make the holes -1/16 deep. the exposed hole will not show. makes a clean look.

Yann Kitson says:

You can fill to "holes" with an epoxy fillet and create structural joints… like those used in boat building.

What about clamping the board vertikcal instead of horizontal? This may fix several cases.

ManCraftingTM says:

Great info. I haven't ventured into the joinery like this yet, mostly because I haven't needed to for any of my projects, but I am sure it will come up.

IgnoreMyChan says:

Would a work around be to change the tool to a smaller one afterwards to do the details in the corners?
