Half laps have two great benefits strength and speed. The joints are strong because there is a lot of face-to-face surface for a good glue joint. At the same time, half laps are quick because both halves of the joint can be cut on the table saw often with the exact same setup. And if you are making multiple joints (which is often the case) this can save you a lot of time. This supplementary article is available to download in this Online Extra.

Inexpensive dado sets (and wobble blades) leave a rounded bottom that don not look very good. Even a good stacked set can cut less than perfect dadoes. One solution is to cut the dado shallower than needed, then use a dado-cleaning bit in the router. The bottom has two-cutting flutes that are ground dead flat. A bearing rides against the sides of the dado. As you can see, the result is a flat-bottomed dado every time.

It is often required to build timber frames and there are a number of simple joints which can be used to make them. Where frames are used, they are often clad with plywood or other man man boards. The use of a frame adds strength to the structure so that relatively thin board can be used - thus save in both weight and cost.
