Thanks for the compliments. I can t take credit for the legs though, I purchased them through mail order because I don t have a lathe.

I like the idea of the stopped sliding dovetails, it does make me a bit nervous since I have never done them before so I may chicken out and do dowels.

How hard is it to do a sliding dovetail in the middle of a long board?

I was thinking is 2 cross bars, one every 2 feet.

Dive in, get some cheap poplar to practice on. If you have a router table cut the dovetail in the side first. Then put the dovetail bit in your table and take a pass against one side of the crossmember, and flip it and do the other side. Keep exposing a tiny bit of the bit and repeat proceedure. Test fit and once its snug your there. I’ve got the incra fence so i can adjust my fence by the thou. As Charles Neil says “sneak up on it”

Practice on some poplar then do the real thing. TNT (TaintNuttinToit)
