While browsing google images for some ideas, I came across a picture of a drawer with this really funky joint. I have no reason to make this joint, but my curiosity is getting the best of me... Does anyone have a clue how you would go about making this? I don't think the article really went into depth on how it was made, besides mentioning that the "pins" are part of the drawer front, and not really pins at all.

The people way back when sure were creative

Edit: after a little more reading, it looks like we're not making these without some late 1800s machinery. Apparently it's a pain to do by hand, and the machine that was originally made to create the joint fell out of service in the early 1900s after machined dovetails came in to use. Too bad, looks better (or at least different), than the usual dovetails we all see

Nope!

That's way over my skill level...either by hand or with a template bill

You could get a very similar look with drilling dowel holes and inserting dowels after the drawer box is assembled.
