Building an Ash Cabinet with 2’X4’ top. I’d like to attach legs to top with no aprons to attach to. Thinking of cutting legs into top as through tenons similar to porch swing pictured here.
Will there be expansion issues? Is there another option attaching tops directly to the top of a leg?
Also, to tighten, in addition to glue, I’m considering a wedge tapped and glued into top of legs. Do I have to consider grain direction when cutting a wedge kerf?
Finally, taking comments regarding finish on ash.
