I want to build a furo and I need any information on the types of joints used on this project. I have read the string on furos in the archives and all I found was a suggestion to use T&G for plank to plank and through tendons for the corners. Has someone used this method and did it work? My original thought was to use a sliding dovetail for both joints. My reasoning was that I thought the water pressure would squeeze the joint and seal the tub. I'm planning to use Port Orford, no glue and no finish.
I looked for a book on furo construction but couldn't find one. I'm surprised there isn't one. If anyone knows of one, I'm in the market.
All input is appreciated,
