well, in olden days they would peg those tenon joints. However now, we primarily use mortise and tenon joints to increase glueing surface area so that the glue joints are stronger. Now racking is mostly a concern when the piece is assembled without ensuring that the piece is actually square to begin with. but it’s really not hard to fix if you know the super secret cabinet maker trick of oh wait, secret and all lol.
