Here, longtime master cabinetmaker & woodworker Frank Klausz demonstrates how to join two pieces of wood together without using glue or sealant - and making it watertight. Shown to him by his grandfather, the clever technique takes advantage of the behavior of both wood and water, and doesn't seem too difficult.
Frank Klausz owns and operates a cabinet shop in Pluckemin, N.J., specializing in fine furniture, reproductions, and custom architectural fixtures.  He has been a master cabinetmaker for more than four decades and learned the craft in his native Hungary.  He writes for woodworking magazines and has five DVDs with the Taunton Press. Klausz teaches woodworking throughout the country in colleges, woodworker clubs, and woodworking schools and seminars.  Check him out online at
