I'm in the middle of a shelving project and decided to try something I sketched up last winter. I've never seen this joint displayed anywhere nor have seen a project that used it. I could be wrong but I think this might be a new joint.

I'm making a side pannel and wanted to try something a bit different. This joint will carry a load thus I wanted the shoulder but I also wanted it to be flush and I was thinking of using glue to hold things together. Since the shoulder is so small and the horizontal piece has a lot of end grain... well rather then go on with this I did a sample to show the geneneral workings of it.

This is not fine woodworking but shows you what you need to know. This joint is exposed so you can see how it looks, when it is used it is centered on the thickness of the work pieces, there by making it hidden. And of course there is a trick to doing it.

Have a look see at:

All rights reserved unless someone else has already done this joint, then never mind about the top secret etc...

Is it really a \"joint\" or a demo of how a biscuit should fit?

Well, it is both. As you can see the joint is not a typical one done with a biscuit. In order for people to see what it looks like \"inside\" I did a joint with the cuts made on the surface rather then the \"mid-point\". When you make the joint of course you will want it centered within the wood.

I cut 28 of those joints today for my project so I sure hope they are going to work as well as I think they will. One set is glued up and curing overnight, hope to make the other side tomorrow.
