I just started building a table from a design my sawyer showed me. This is featuring black walnut slabs from a tree my grandfather planted when my father was just born. Since he has passed we harvested the tree before selling the house and are building legacy furniture out of it.
I am seeking advice on attacking the single leg to the 12/4 table base. The single leg will be three 8/4 pieces glued together and shaped. I have attached the picture of the table I based the design off of.
I’m not even sure the name of the joint. The closest joint it resembles is probably a bridal joint? Currently planning on cutting a dado out of the base and the leg and simply gluing with some screws for reinforcement. Do you guys think theirs enough long grain to long grain with this method?
I am open for suggestions because I want this to be the right decision!
