I am building an outdoor dining table. It will have thin slats (less than 1.5”) and the table will look something like:
I’m not sure how to attach the narrow slats. If they were wider (and fewer!), I would probably mortise and tenon them. I was thinking of rabbeting the slats and routing a groove down the end and middle pieces. Then just sliding the slats in during glue-up and use dividers to keep them separate. If I did it this way, would I need to attach the slats with anything other than glue? The slats will be 3/4” thick.
Or is there a better way to do this?
