    I wouldn’t know how to attribute this, not understanding how “Pinterest” works, but this is a seemingly straightforward way to create a mortise/tenon joint, with wedge reinforcements, in a way that only the woodworker would know:

    Many people posted it, but it seems to have originated from Japan; it certainly has that feel to it. Has anyone else seen this elsewhere?

    I have seen this before in books etc…

    From memory I think this might be called a “fox wedged tenon” in western terminology but could easily be wrong.

    Never made one and it looks like you’d need to be quite practiced at it or very brave to use one 🙂

    I would have to become more practiced at open M&T’s. I am considering draw peg buttressing for the Craftsman radiator enclosures I have to build before we move. Wood radiator enclosures are rare, probably because of the radical heat surges and the possibility of steam systems (which we have). Whe I finally install them, I’ll store the metal ones for the next owner, just in case.

    Now, to look up “fox wedged” joints. Thank you for your feedback.
