Clarification on a ‘slotted tenon’ or like a dado with another piece of wood sitting in it? Building a chest.
I want to build a chest. I have a bunch of boards and some plywood. It’ll double to hold some stuff and as a table to hold a drink or a notebook here or there. Nothing serious, only used by 1-2 people. As in it’s not a high traffic, 5 or 6 people dinner table or something.
I was thinking of just cutting a straight groove/tenon/dado into the base and letting it sit in there. I know it might not be the super most sturdy structurally but it really doesn’t have to be. I figure the box part will mostly keep things together. I basically need the bottom to not fall out. I see a lot of chests built with legs but this one will not have legs and just sit on its base.
