I am contemplating two different "knockdown" joints for the stretchers on a 21st Century Workbench inspired design. The two bottom stretchers in the original design have a type of wedged tenon that I really like (first pic below), but I have never seen before, unlike the "Stickley Type" wedged tenons (2nd pic below) that are used/seen quite often. Is one significantly stronger than the other? My suspicions is the Stickley type is both stronger and easier to cut.
I appologize if my terminology is off, I don't know how else to describe these tenon joints.
