Can't think of this joint's name

Hi,
I'm making a table with a base similar to this one. What do you call this joint? How do you measure for the cutouts?

I believe that is made intersecting half laps. Like a Lincoln Log.

Your table leg may not use the 1/2 width as shown. The vertical may be deeper than half. The width of the cut is simply the width of the stock. The depth of the cut is whatever you choose to make it 1/2, more or less.
Bret has made for some really cool joinery. Look in Bret's My Photos. bill
