I need design help with a Greene & Greene inspired stool that I am building. I am going by a picture that I saw and I have no other information to go by except for the overall dimensions.
I have three questions about the through tenons on the legs.
1.) Should they be at the very ends of the legs or should they be inset?
2.) If they are inset, then how far? Would 1/2” be enough?
3.) Is there a “standard” formula for the length and width of the through tenons? I am using 3/4” stock so would I make them twice as long as the thickness? In other word, would I make then 3/4” x 1-1/2”?
I hope that my drawing helps to explain my questions.
