    Cool Joint

    I found this posted on another forum I belong to. Called a French Dovetail.

    Lots of strength in that joint, I'll reckon, and yet, it looks like a lowly miter cut

    Nice job!

    That joint is strickly for the strength. Once closed it will appear to be a simple miter (mitre) and only the craftsman will know it exists...
    I have seen it used in secret compatment where the joint is not glued and can be opened to expose a secret place.
