Thank you guys! I’ve been leaning in the direction of dove-tail joints, for aesthetic reasons as well as joint strength.

I’ve never cut dovetails before – and I have a very inexpensive backsaw with which to cut them, so I’ll be doing some trial and error on spare stock before I attempt it on the frame for the table.

I was also thinking, that it might be nice to do larger pins and tails, given the scale of the table. I’m working with 1X6 pine on the sides—so would it be more appropriate to to smaller pins and tails? Either way?

Thank you, all of you, for your input, it is greatly appreciated!
