That’s a beautiful table. What kind of joinery is used on the legs?

I use a loose Tenon (Domino) to hold the end grain joints together on the top and bottom joints and the 4 legs are tied together with a center post that has a dado down 4 sides and the inside edge of the legs get a rabbit to give it the one piece look.
