Fingerjointing creates stable joints between two solid wood or composite wood components or join short pieces of wood into one long one.

The shoulder profiles have table plates that look like parquet, where only the straight butt joints are visible.

The half shoulder profile is the second most frequent profile run (after the vertical fingerjoint) because it can be used with shapers as well as in manual to fully automatic lines.

The reverse shoulder profile is mainly used for the simplest lines where sometimes, no scoring unit is used.

The trapeze profile, also called the “American Profile” typically has a fingerjoint length of 1/4 inch.

The vertical fingerjoint is primarily used in construction woodworking as well as windows and frames.  The most frequently produced fingerjoint, it offers the largest glue surface. For this reason, it is considered the most stable of all fingerjoints.
