    What is the’best’ joint for shelves on a utility cabinet

    I am a proponent of adjustable shelves, so I'd make a template using a piece of pegboard (or you may have a commercial one like I do) and drill stopped holes for shelf pins at 1" intervals near the front and back to support shelves at any level you want.

    "Cabinet makers are a dying breed"
