Is there any woodworking joint that will work to join two boards at a 90 degree angle that doesn’t require vertical mounting? Preferably something that looks cool?
I.e. a substitute for a fingerjoin or dovetail?
I’d like to pop out some bookcases. I don’t even know if it’s possible but it seems like it should be.
I’ll probably get corrected on one or more of these but
tongue and groove
cove and pin
I’ve done half-blind box joints laid flat. There are some visible filet holes but not from the blind front face and I personally liked the look from the side:
that’s cool. How did you lay them out?
I’ve done something similar with a box joint where everything is machined flat. There are dogbones in the corners to allow the pieces to fit together.
I just did it manually in vcarve as a test of a home-built CNC. Created the edge profiles and then just copied them to all the relevant sides. Looks like jointcam or a similar program might do this for you if you’re going to be doing it regularly, but I was just trying it out and it wasn’t that hard to lay it out manually for 3 different-sized boxes.
