newbie needs advise on how to join board and make it removable

i have 2-3/4" oak boards joined at 90 degrees with biscuits at one end. great so far.
at the other end i want to join another board at 90 degrees at either the end, 1 " from the end or 2 inches from the end. As i am sending this piece to a customer, i need a simple way for the customer to attach the board at 90 degrees to one of the three positions. Is it possible? dowel?
thanks for any advise!

this question has been asked on a few other forums.

the basic consensus is:
what will the item be used for
what are the skills of the receiver
what tools does the receiver have
will it be stained, finished or painted before you ship it
the more info you can provide = the better the feedback you will receive.

Copy the flat pack furniture suppliers and use a cam device.

Yes, we need to know what the project is to advise. There are a number of ways to make a joint removable, especially if only one side shows. Like Johnep said you can buy entire pieces of furniture all broken down in a cardboard box and you put it together yourself.

for this project I am selling couch coasters to fit over an arm of the sofa.

the cam is a good idea but i dont think it will work on this as i want clean faces on the outside. making a lot of custom widths so i was trying to figure out how to make 3 width options per top

If you have a biscuit machine there are a variety of hidden fasteners that would work well. Check out Lamello's web site. And a relatively new fastener that can also be used with a proprietary hand held tool that resembles the biscuit joiner. Look up OVVO on line. The OVVO product looks like it would have excellent strength.
LockDowel is an other product, but best used with more advanced equipment than you are likely to have.
Metal or plastic fasteners are available in many forms. Look @ Hafele's catalog on line.
Lamello biscuit machines are much better than the knock offs.
Domino machines are a way of producing a joint similar to a doweled one by using a hand held machine. Strong simple joint but requires glue.
