Expansion Washers - Hardware
Expansion Washers - Hardware
An idea brought to us by Chris Becksvoort, the well-known Maine author/craftsman, these expansion washers are a creative answer to the problem of the cyclical expansion and contraction of solid wood panels and table tops.

Used as shown in the above photo and in the diagrams (select "View" in the price line below), they solve the ever-present problem of wood movement in furniture construction. Two sizes are available for use with round-head screws up to #10 or #14.

The washers readily install in skirts or frames; simply rout or drill the necessary slots in the members. The #10 is just shy of 1/2" wide with a 3/16" clearance slot, and the #14 just under 5/8" with a 1/4" clearance slot. They are an elegant and inexpensive solution to an age-old problem. Sold in packs of 12. Zinc-plated steel.

Made in USA.
