Crossword Genius

Breaking hand, return to a bit of carpentry (5,5)


I believe the answer is:

mitre joint

Here is my best explanation:

'bit of carpentry' is the definition.

'breaking hand return to' is the subsidiary indication.

'breaking' indicates putting letters inside.

'hand' becomes 'mitt' ('mitt' can be a synonym of 'hand').

'return to' becomes 'rejoin'.

'mitt' enclosing 'rejoin' is 'mitrejoint'.

'a' is the link.
