The lintels (the top stones) at Stonehenge were joined together using another woodworking style: tongue and groove.

As an aside, it is interesting that you bring Stonehenege into a discussion of Gobekli Tepe. According to a recent book called Turkish Stonehenge, Gobekli Tepe and Stonehenge are very much related. A study by a University in England (U. of Leicester, I believe) focused on DNA and found that 80% of the white males in England can trace their heritage to the Anatolians who migrated there thousands of years before Stonehenge was built. These farmers won favor from the women of the hunter/gatherers, and their genes have been passed from father to son. The idea is that the decendants of the builders of GT built the stone circles in Europe.
