Forum Members: I need some advice … I’m working on a large, Jatoba-based outdoor bench, which has 40 M&T joints – most of which are load-bearing (there are backrest slats which are not). The bench will be 100 lbs, all-in; and will be permanently outdoors – North East, US. This is my first M&T project, and...
