      Splined joint. They are cut on a special jig on a tablesaw that holds the work at 45 degrees.

      Similar to a box joint, but the cuts are equal height and other small pieces replace the fingers.

      Greetings all;
      I have a (maybe stupid) question about joinery...
      There are dovetail, ?square tail?, and I have seen (and used) something that looks like square tail, but instead of the two pieces being cut to fit like dovetails, there are other small (dovetail sized) rectangles that joint the two pieces together.  Most often stained a different color than the main pieces (for contrast and show off the joinery)
      Anybody know what this type of joinery is called, and also if I’m using the correct term with square tails (dovetails that are not angled)?
       
      Thanks
       
      Bobby
