A similar joint, called a box or finger joint, has
straight protrusions called fingers on both boards.
This joint is used on jewelry boxes and other small
boxes. The box joint is strong because it has a large
surface area for glue.
The Dovetail Dado, or Sliding Dovetail,
consists of a dovetail-shaped dado in one
board and a dovetail-shaped tenon in the
other board. This method is a strong way of
connecting fixed shelves to walls.
