    • C.

      Dado Joint.

    • D.

      Miter Joint.

    Correct Answer
    B. Rabbet Joint.
    Explanation
    A rabbet joint is made by cutting a shoulder or edge from one piece to receive the other piece. This type of joint is commonly used in window or door frames, as well as in shelf and drawer construction. It provides a strong and secure connection between the two pieces, ensuring stability and durability in the overall structure.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    This is similar in shape and purpose to the rabbet joint. In the dado joint agroove is made in one piece at right angles to the grain of the other board. If nails areused, they are needed only at the end piece since the groove will provide the necessarystrength to hold the other piece in place.

    • A.

      Halved Joint.

    • B.

      Rabbet Joint

    • C.

      Dado Joint.

    • D.

      Miter Joint.

    Correct Answer
    C. Dado Joint.
    Explanation
    The dado joint is similar to the rabbet joint in shape and purpose. In a dado joint, a groove is made in one piece at right angles to the grain of the other board. This groove provides the necessary strength to hold the other piece in place, so nails are only needed at the end piece. The dado joint is commonly used in woodworking to create strong and secure connections between two pieces of wood.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    IThe miter is a joint between two pieces which come together at a corner. It isa finish joint and should not be used where strength is an important requirement. It ismade by cutting the two ends at angles complementary to each other, usually 45°, andthen butting them together. The joint is secured by clamp nails or finishing nails,corrugated fasteners or dowels, or by gluing.

    • A.

      Halved Joint.

    • B.

      Rabbet Joint

    • C.

      Dado Joint.

    • D.

      Miter Joint

    Correct Answer
    D. Miter Joint
    Explanation
    A miter joint is a type of joint used to connect two pieces of material at a corner. It is a finish joint, meaning it is primarily used for aesthetic purposes rather than providing strength. The joint is created by cutting the two ends of the material at angles that add up to 90 degrees, typically 45 degrees each. The two pieces are then butted together and secured with clamp nails, finishing nails, corrugated fasteners, dowels, or glue.

    Correct Answer
    B. Scabbed or Fished Splice
    Explanation
    A scabbed or fished splice is a type of joint used to connect two pieces of timber. In this joint, the squared ends of the timber are fitted together and reinforced with additional timber pieces called scabs or fishplates. These scabs or fishplates are attached to the sides of the joint, providing extra strength and stability to the connection. This type of splice is commonly used in construction and woodworking to join timbers end to end, creating a longer and more secure piece of wood.

    Correct Answer
    A. Compression
    Explanation
    A scabbed or fished splice is a type of splice that is used for compression. Compression refers to the act of applying pressure or squeezing together. In the context of splices, compression splices are used to join two pieces of material by applying pressure to compress and hold them together. This type of splice is commonly used in applications where the material needs to withstand compression forces, such as in construction or engineering projects.

    Correct Answer
    B. Tension
    Explanation
    Square Splice is a type of splice used for tension. This means that it is specifically designed to join two members together in a way that can withstand pulling or stretching forces. It is commonly used in applications where tension loads are expected, such as in cables, wires, or ropes. The design of the Square Splice ensures that the tension forces are evenly distributed across the splice, minimizing the risk of failure or breakage.

    • B.

      Square Splice.

    • C.

      Scabbed or Fished Splice

    • D.

      Halved Splice

    Correct Answer
    A. Scarfed Splice.
    Explanation
    When a piece of timber is subjected to bending, the upper part experiences compression forces while the lower half experiences tension forces. A scarfed splice is a type of joint that is specifically designed to handle these opposing forces. It involves tapering the ends of two timber pieces and joining them together at an angle, creating a strong and seamless connection. This type of splice is commonly used in construction and woodworking to reinforce beams or other load-bearing structures.

    • C.

      FLIGHT

    Correct Answer
    A. RISE
    Explanation
    The term "RISE" refers to the vertical height of a flight of stairs from one landing to another. It represents the distance that a person needs to ascend or descend in order to move between two landings. The rise of a flight of stairs is an important measurement in determining the overall height and design of the staircase.

      RISE

    • B.

      RUN

    • C.

      FLIGHT

    Correct Answer
    B. RUN
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "RUN" because in stairways, the term "run" refers to the horizontal distance covered by a flight of steps. The rise refers to the vertical distance between each step, and the flight refers to a continuous series of steps. Therefore, "run" is the most appropriate term to describe the horizontal distance in this context.
