Decorative End Caps

Another version of decorative bolt joinery uses a finished end cap. The bolt Is often hidden and only the cap is visible. The head is about 14" in diameter and is drawn tight to the material surface. These cap nuts provide a sound mechanical connection. They are also used on high-stress joints such as bed frames.


Some quick-connect hardware requires a hole. Once the locking cam is secured in the hole and the pin is installed In the piece to be joined, a cam is turned to lock the pieces together.


I'll use some of these hardware items, such as this decorative PB cap screw, to build a few of the projects in this book. It may not be purist woodworking, but these fasteners do have a place in modern cabinetry. They are fun to use and extremely strong when correctly installed.
