The scissor joint is a popular timber joint in woodworking. It gets its name from its resemblance to open scissors, where two diagonal pieces intersect to create a strong and stable connection. This joint is appreciated for its simplicity and strength, making it suitable for woodworking enthusiasts of all levels. It is commonly used in furniture construction, framing, and truss building, providing excellent structural integrity to projects.
