Rule joint

Today’s photo is of the rule joint of the two harvest tables I’m working on. This joint is simple enough when you get it right but the first time I made a harvest table I found I had problems with it binding as it closed. I know rout the joint and place the hinges in such a way that the joint is tight when it is closed but gets more clearance as it opens. This prevents binding but still gives a tight joint.

I’ll post photos of the open and closed joint once I get the leaves attached to the tops.
