I am putting together a platform bed with storage and needed a helping hand with assembly of the carcase. I cut up some 4×4s into cubes and cut a ¾” wide x ⅜” deep dado into one face and then cut the same size dado at right angles to the first dado. To use them, I put in adjacent sides into the dadoes then clamp them up to ensure a right angle assembly. I did find the dadoes a bit too shallow. Before I use them next time, I’ll cut the dadoes deeper, like closer to ¾” or so.
This is probably not a new idea, but it worked for me.
