A problem with the one you linked at Amazon is that you have to be able to cut a flat bottomed recess for the flat washer. The Woodriver ones can be done with a forstner bit which will be much easier to do IMO… not to mention a lot cheaper too. Search for “countertop joint connector” on Amazon to see a few other options there.

Thanks AKGuy, those look VERY SLICK, and perhaps worth spending 5x more since I’m not producing a great deal of tops!
