I’ve made the long slots on the inside of the apron and used those clips before with pretty good results. I think Norm made his clips out of wood scraps, but the concept is the same. I use figure eights for smaller table tops. You don’t have to make the slot the whole length. This is especially important if that slot will show out the ends. You can use your biscuit joiner to make slots where you want them and they’ll be wide enough to accomodate the wood movement. I’m getting ready to embark on our new dining room table, so I’m right there with you. Have you thought about blogging on your progress?
