I’m with you Viktor, and appreciate the input and positive discussion. I’m an engineer by training and career, and a budding woodworker at home with a great interest in learning and improving (which is why I read this site at work, I suppose).

Further, I agree with you that the scarf joint would be an elegant and strong joint, but it seems to me it would also take the highest (vs. fingerjointed or dowelled butt joint) level of skill to execute, given the need for jointed, well-fitted faces in order to create a thin, strong glue interface.
