I was contacted about a post from yesterday, the one showing a "mess of slip tenons". The person who contacted me asked about what they were/how they worked. @bbomberger, this post is for you. Instead of a traditional mortise and tenon, we make a mortise in both parts being joined together and then insert a long slip tenon into both mortises. Same idea as a doweled joint, just a bit different.
