Colonial Saw and the Wisconsin chapter of the Architectural Woodwork Institute recently sponsored a joinery and fastener presentation to students in the cabinetmaking and millwork program at Madison Area Technical College in Madison, Wis.

Dan Dempsey of Colonial Saw discussed the benefits of using the Lamello biscuit joiner and P-System connectors to simplify finishing and installation challenges. He designed an angular cabinet to illustrate the various fastening options. After the classroom portion, students were able to try the fastening system themselves.

“We greatly appreciate Colonial Saw’s commitment to education. Sharing the innovative fastening solutions of Lamello’s product line first-hand gave our students and area industry members a greater awareness of potential labor-saving opportunities. From the shop to site applications, our students now have a better understanding of ways to solve a variety of joinery challenges,” says program director Patrick Molzahn.
