  • Awesome video Matt. I was just wondering if you would be able to very briefly tell us at the end of each video what you would use each type of joint for? For example when would you use a cross halving joint? I understand that the choice of joint is a totally personal decision to make, but it would be cool to see how each different type of joint could be applied in different projects. Does that make sense? Ramble over. Thanks again. Keep up the great work mate
