Default Re: A new joint?

This solves the problem I always had with that kind of lap joint, that the parts could twist at the joint, but it also significantly weakens the overall load carrying ability of the members. Which may or may not matter in your application.

It does look pretty cool. Here are a couple of router bits that could make it easier and neater.

It would also be a good joint to start on the JointMaster.
