Uncle Bill

Excellent pictures thanks for posting them. I am very much interested in any ration box pictures as that was to be my next project, the kids in schools always want to see “stuff” and the more the better.

In Post #14 I think that you will fine the joint is called "Corner Locking Joint". Its a machine made joint, relying on glue for its strengfh. It is made on an attachment to a vertical spindle moulder. It has been associated with the manufacture of boxes and instrument cases, and also with shop-fitting. It does not usually feature in builders joinery, but provided its appearance were acceptable there seems to be no reason why it should not be used as a cheaper alternative to a dovetail joint.

Thank you very much, John.

I (at last!) now know the name of the joint.
