Mason’s Mitre Joints for Kitchen Worktops: A Worktop Express® Nutshell Guide

2 Responses to “Mason’s Mitre Joints for Kitchen Worktops: A Worktop Express® Nutshell Guide”

  1. You explain that a mason’s mitre joint is the most common joint for worktops. This joint is also known as a butt and scribe joint or hockey stick joint. Then for solid worktops you recommend a butt joint. There is no explanation how this joint is exactly different from the mason’s mitre joint/butt and scribe joint. Please can you explain how the butt joint differs?

  2. Hello Harjit,

    A butt joint and a mason’s mitre joint are both very similar, the difference between the two is simply the shape of the connection. The curve at the front of the worktop in a mitre joint is not required for a butt joint, where the two straight edges of the worktop are connected without any need for cutting first. You can find out more about the different joints suitable for worktop connection in our guide to worktop joints.

    Kind regards,
    Stephanie @ Worktop Express
