Halving joint

The halving joint is mainly used in constructing a framework. It is fairly difficult to construct as it made up of two channels that interlock and are bonded together with glue and some cases a nail or screw is added for extra strength.

It consists of two pieces of wood that have two channels cut half the thickness of both pieces to produce a flush interlocking joint which allows the two pieces of wood slide past each other.
