I’m still practicing with wedges. I find it pleasing to the eye, simple and very strong. No glue or screws. The legs are 1 1/2” sq. and shaped a 1” round tenon to fit the bore thru the slab. I used a 1” box wrench as a die. I then shaped the shoulder to fit with the curve of the slab. Overall dimentions are 5/4+- x 9”w x 61”l x 23” with persimmon wedges. BLO finish.

Very well done. I have always thought the true sign of a craftsmen is in their joinery.
