Well here is some progress I made today .
Felt good this morning and took the clamps of the arches ,turned out good .
My wife came out to help to set up the table and we decided what to do next with the design as it is being done step by step without any drawings .
The cross braces that stabilise the table side to side will also support the shelf but it took some head scratching as how to make everything join together with the kerf bent let legs and here is the solution I came up with .



Here are some pics of the mortise and tennon joint .

Carefully laying out the locations and drilling out most of the waste .


A little chopping and paring and the mortises are done .


Setting up my cross cut sled which has a double bottom so I can slide the upper panels to provide a zero clearance set up for any blade width and also has a replaceable insert in the fence .http://lumberjocks.com/projects/61820
Using a stop block and finger joint blade produced nice tennons and with a little dry fitting it all went together nicely .
That is it for today ,next is the floating shelf ,feet and sanding ,then on to finishing the top .

That is such a cool design! Love the kerf bent arches.

That is a unique mallet you are using!

What a great looking table Kiefer! I love the design as is, but it will be interesting to see what you come up with next on this fine piece.

I agree with my friends, this is a great looking table. I’ve been following along and am pretty tempted to make one for myself. Really nice work Kiefer!

Very impressive. Rounded work is always so time consuming, but you haven’t allowed it to affect the quality of workmanship. A very professionally made piece.
