A barrel nut, also known as a cross dowel or connector nut, is a type of specialized nut that is typically used in furniture assembly, woodworking, and other applications where you need to create a strong and concealed connection between two pieces of wood or other materials.
Key characteristics of a barrel nut include:
Barrel Shape: A barrel nut has a cylindrical or barrel-like shape with a threaded hole through its center. This shape allows it to be inserted into a hole drilled in one piece of material while providing a threaded connection for a bolt or screw from the other side.
Sleeve or Insert: Barrel nuts are often inserted into a hole that is drilled into the edge or face of one piece of material, with the threaded hole in the nut facing outward.
Threaded Hole: The threaded hole inside the barrel nut is used to accept a machine screw, bolt, or other threaded fastener.
Strong Connection: Barrel nuts are favored for their ability to create a sturdy connection, especially in applications where you want a flush or hidden fastening solution.
Concealed Fastening: When assembled, barrel nuts provide a clean and concealed connection, as the fastener is hidden within the material, making them a popular choice for furniture, cabinets, and other woodworking projects.
Barrel nuts are available in various sizes, materials (typically metal or plastic), and designs to suit different applications and requirements. When used in combination with screws or bolts, they create a strong and secure joint. The choice of barrel nut and fastener will depend on the specific needs of your project and the material you are working with.
