I’m interested in knowing how others go about gluing up this joint. I’m building a QA spice chest on stand, and the sides of the stand are 10.5” wide. That’s an awfully wide cross grain glue up into the vertical grain of the legs, and I’m tempted to let the upper pin float to allow for future expansion (I will glue up in low humidity February). OTOH I suspect these were mostly just glued up all the way across in the period. How do others handle this joint?
