Hi guys and gals.
I am needing some advice on hardware to use to creat a cisors action in two 1×1” boards about 47” long. The hardware can’t show on the outside like bolts and screws.
Any ideas is appreciated.

If you can’t use through hardware, how will you keep the pieces together?

Rick, I was thinking I might be able to use my keyhole router bit and use some contraption to bring the two together.
MrUnix, that might be my only option.

Just a thought, how about large dowels and cross dowels into the larger ones to keep them in place!

Is there a way you can use a threaded insert? Is it ok to see hardware on the inside?

Threaded insert, bolt going through (Or just a stud with an acorn nut), the inside pc with a small collar over the threads, washer in between the 2 pcs?

Insert in both pcs with a short pc of all thread going into both. you would have to screw the 2 halves together before attaching the ends to whatever they attach to.
