- Jan 27, 2013Yes, I couldn'r agree more.The wedge-locked tenon in a through-mortice is the classic period joint for furniture of the medieval Era, furniture which needs to be able to be flat-packed and transported on packhorses, or in Wains.
who has now made a lot of flat-packing medieval-replica camp furniture for the SCA Populace in Europe, after fitting-out his own Camp..

I would mortise and tennon the legs into the feel, move the lower cross support down, and change the dowels to 1x2s do a through tennon on the sides and pin them with wedges, This would allow for easy packing, pull 4 wedges and it comes apart for packing.

I came across this design on lumberjocksany thoughts, particularly on how the uprights are joined to the feet? I assume mortise and tenon. Also, I don't anticipate the lower dowel being used for anything except structural support. Could it be moved lower, almost to the feet? I worry if I did that it might have a tendency to rack.Thanks,James
