  L shaped brackets

 

L shaped brackets are available to help make a T joint. The metal strips have holes drilled in them so that once correctly positioned, they can be screwed securely. The L shaped brackets fit into both the corners joining the face piece to the cross piece. Use a bradawl or drill pilot holes into the wood in the bracket hole positions to help prevent any splitting.


 
  T shaped brackets

 

T shaped brackets are available to help make a T joint. The metal strip has holes drilled in it to screw the two pieces into position. The T shaped bracket screws directly on top of the pieces once they are positioned correctly. Use a bradawl or drill pilot holes into the wood in the bracket hole positions to help prevent any splitting.
