Hello LumberJocks Community,
I am creating Mahogany feet for a Cheval Mirror I’m making. The feet must support 38” legs that are adjoined to the top part of the foot using double mortice and tenon. My question is, how do you recommend adjoining the upper portion with the mortices to the lower part of the foot. The upper part will experience torque in every direction as the mirror is tilted and moved, and I want that force to be positively transferred to the lower foot.
Please note I do not have a Festool Domnio and have no plans to purchase one. Additionally, I would rather not use dowels. What I would like to do is cut a joint for these two long-grain surfaces. I don’t know what would be ideal considering wood movement in these relatively thick pieces.
I am grateful for any assistance you may offer. Thanks in advance.
