Thank you all for the replies. Dan I think I’ll buy one of those lock miter bits and practice using that on some scrap wood. If I don’t like it I will probably go with the box joint. I will have plenty of time to practice. The boards are not currently dry enough. I cut the tree down about 19 months ago and coated the ends with sealer, and the log got milled 1 month ago, and when I stacked it I used my meter on one of the thicker boards and it was about %15. I’ve got some time to wait on that stack to dry, unless I can find someone local to my area with a kiln. I would like to build my own solar kiln eventually. Any recommendations on a glue type?
