Mortise and Tenon Joints in Custom Furniture

Used for thousands of years by woodworkers worldwide, the mortise and tenon joint joins pieces of wood with a simple and strong form. The two main components of the joinery include the mortise hole and the tenon, which is cut to fit the exact measurements of the mortise hole. The joint is then wedged, glued, or pinned to lock the pieces in place. Learn more about the terminology and history of joinery. Learn more and view diagrams of mortise and tenon joinery.

Custom Designed Fine Art Office Desk

The Gamble House, also known as David B. Gamble House, (constructed 1908 – 1909) is a National Historic Landmark and museum in Pasadena, California, USA. It was designed by the architectural firm Greene and Greene, brothers Charles Sumner Greene and Henry Mather Greene, as a home for David B. Gamble of the Procter & Gamble company. Originally intended as a winter residence for David and Mary Gamble, the three-story Gamble House is a residential ark commonly described as America’s Arts and Crafts masterpiece, whose style shows influence from traditional Japanese aesthetics and a certain California spaciousness born of available land and a permissive climate. Arts-and-Crafts architecture was focused on the use of natural materials, attention to detail, aesthetics, and craftsmanship.

History David and Mary Gamble lived in the house during the winter months until their deaths in 1923 and 1929, respectively. Julia (Mary’s younger sister) lived in the house until her death in 1943. Cecil Huggins Gamble and his wife Louise Gibbs Gamble lived in the house beginning in 1946 and briefly considered selling it. They soon changed their minds, however, when prospective buyers spoke of painting the interior teak and mahogany woodwork white. The Gambles realized the artistic importance of the house and it remained in the Gamble family until 1966, when it was deeded to the city of Pasadena in a joint agreement with the University of Southern California School of Architecture.
