I am hoping there is a non-screw method of joining these. I would actually like to use some sort of loose tenon but I’m not sure how shallow one side (the mortise) can be and still hold.
I’m building some small cedar patio/camping/fishing tables that are fold-able. I made a prototype out of fir using screws but I don’t like the look and it’s just a matter of time before the screws get loose and then it’s trash.
All the boards are 1/2” thick. I could make the top a little thicker but no more than 3/4” or it wouldn’t be very fold-able which would defeat it’s purpose of being light and stow-able.
Any advice is appreciated.
