Default Name that joint!

Similar to mortise and tenon - except that I think of a mortise as a
(doubly) stopped dado, and this isn't stopped at either end.

Do A and B have different names, or do they share the same name?

I think "A" is called a Tongue & Mortise joint and "B" a Bare-faced tongue &
dado joint.

Dado joint and rabbit joint? That's what I'd call 'em...

B is called a "barefaced housing joint".

A rabbit is similar to B but a rabbit joint is a joint cut into 1 side of
the joint, not both.

Morris,

My newbie guess is that 'A' is a tongue and groove joint and that 'B' is a
lock miter joint.

A is a dado, B is a locking rabbet.

A is a dado, B is a locking rabbet.

They are both tongue & groove .. .. just with different offsets.

Default Name that joint - Thanks!

Thanks to all who responded. I've been building boxes using these
joints and hadn't a clue what they were called.

Double thanks to Swingman for the book ref - I'll see if the book is
available through my local library. Time for me to acquire a better
woodworking vocabulary...

This thread reminds of my old high school and college days when I worked
part-time in the hardware department at Sears. So many tools go by
multiple names that even after six years I was still learning new ones.
Typically, some guy would come in asking for a "doohickey". I'd give him
a puzzled look, and he go wander around till he found what he wanted,
then come back and say "Now this here is a doohickey." It would
invariably be some common tool that I knew by three or four other names.
