How to make a rebate wood joint

The rebate joint is similar woodwork joint to the butt joint. The big difference between the two is that one of the ends of the wood has a groove cut out creating a better holding strength.

The joint is relatively easy to construct and looks more appealing compared to a regular butt joint making it a better joint for carpentry.

If you need more strength you can also add nails, screws and dowel to the joint just like you would on a butt joint and no wood blocks should be needed in the corner because the rebate joint has a large surface area for glue to be applied.
