Rebatedrabbeted or mitre box corner dovetail joints

Small boxes, trays, etc. are often rebated/ rabbeted for a lid (157:1 A) and if through dovetailed in the normal way may show a small gap on one piece at the end of the rebate; the half pin is, therefore, laid out below the rebate, and the shoulder of the pin piece brought forward to close the gap. Figure 157:2 is an alternative form where the gap is sealed by the tail piece. If the top of the box or frame shows a mitred edge (157:3) the top pin is not cut through at X, and if the sides are rebated then the depth of the mitre should equal that of the rebate.
