Fair enough (I like that table)

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
Fair enough, an application where glue is likely to fail(is that the reason for pinning?).

I'm looking to learn. It is not a joint I have ever used, maybe because I don't appreciate where it should be used, or it offers no benefit to what I build or how I build, or whatever. Curious minds want to know.

There is a architectural door shop locally and they don't pin M&T joints. They have a dandy clamp rack for assembly and maybe that is why they don't pin? None of my 6-panel house doors are pinned.
