well thank you for the words.. as to the question of the leg to stretcher joint. the grid that supports the frame that holds the glass is held into the leg by what i would call a double bridal joint. the grid is half lapped inside of the leg on all for corners. and the bottom supports have 2 hardwood dowels in them. the hard part was the glue up ….

That’s a perfect table for a glass top because it gives you something interesting to look at through the glass. Nice joinery. Functional and aesthetically pleasing together in one.
