Here is a table I found in a Popular Woodworking arts and crafts project book. Me and my two girls made it out of red oak. It’s essentially four legs and two shelves. First you cut a dado in the long edge of four boards and then route to shape the legs with a template and a pattern bit. It was a quick and easy build. In the process of making it I wanted a new way to sign my pieces. Before this I had been burning it into the wood underneath but decided this would add a modern approach and look pretty neat. You can see it on the bottom of the shelf. It’s a 1/8” thick maple disc that I printed my logo onto and cut round to shape. I then drill a hole to match with a forstner bit and glue it in. Then comes the projects finish which goes right over that as well. We have large format printers at work that can print directly onto the wood so I made about 30 of them. Should last quite a while.

Thanks for looking.

As an update. I think you would actually call these joints that hold it all together, rabbets. Since they are on the edge and not in the middle of wood like dadoes.
