An approach to simplify the joinery is to cut rabbets on the top and bottom surfaces of the 4” x 4” stretchers at the joining ends, perhaps ¾” deep, creating tenons. Then cut two wide ¾” thick pieces to the outline of the three stretches. The ¾” profiled pieces would then fit into the top and bottom rabbets. The ¾” profiled pieces could then be flushed up with the stretchers. The grain direction of the top inlayed ¾” stock would be orientated perpendicular to the grain direction of the bottom inlayed ¾” pieces – for strength. The gap in the butt cuts on the tenoned ends of the stretchers would be concealed by the top and bottom ¾” inlays.
