Nice job! And well thought too – straight grain for the legs and figured grain for the aprons, stretchers and shelves. How did you joint the aprons and stretchers to the legs?

Great design. Congrats.

Best,

Serge

The aprons are joined to the legs with dowels and glue.

Thanks Emmett. I’m glad I asked because you’re reminding me to use dowels more often when mortises and tenons would be overkill. For simplicity I always turn to pocket hole joinery but I feel using dowels seems closer to ’woodworking’.

Best,

Serge
