Rebate Joint

exploded rebate joint                         rebate joint
The rebate joint is a very similar woodwork joint to the butt joint but the big difference between the two is that one of the ends of the timber has a groove cut out of it to create much better holding strength.

Even with the extra strength the joint is still relatively easy to construct and its appearance is also more appealing compared to a regular butt joint making it a better joint for carpentry or cabinet making.

If more strength is still required you can also add nails, screws and dowel to the joint just like you would on a butt joint but no timber blocks should be needed in the corner because the rebate joint already has a large surface for adhesives to be applied.
