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.
