CNC Joinery- The Blind Dado

Has anyone been able to create a blind dado in Easel? I’m trying to create an open tray
(think box app generator with no top) for a coffee table, but i dont want to pocket a thick a piece of material, I want to join this tray, but i dont want the joinery to be revealed. I’ve seen Episode 4 of CNC basecamp, but I was wondering if anyone has created a blind dado with a qualified tenon to hide their joinery in Easel? or advice on how to do so in Vcarve also. Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated.

something like this?
