|Original joint glued and pegged|
Obviously not strong enough though I am still at a bit of loss to understand why it came apart. It's a half-lapped joint withs lots of glue on it and four bamboo pegs (pre-drilled). The wood was dry when we put it together and we did a good job on the half lapping of the joint. The glue by itself should have really held it so I am thinking that because we didn't clamp it from top and bottom and wedged it instead from the sides, that the glue never really had a chance to bond.
