Everything I read says a tenon should be a third the width of the piece it lodges in- My 4×4 uprights under my bench ends will be m&t’ed into 4×4 cross pieces which will be mounted on casters- The “third” rule would allow a pinch over an inch for the tenon width- Considering the nature of the joint, and the fact that the bench will be pushed here and there, will a third be enough? Thanks for your thoughts-
