My wife saw this and really liked it, I understand the basics of through mortises but I saw this and have no idea how they did this unless the sides are in two peices and glues back together along the long grain, and the mortise is done on a angle for the two halfs? Any feedback would be great appreciated.

That table is gross.

It could be faked joinery. The lighter piece of wood could actually be cut into 3 pieces. Or the vertical legs could be cut into two halves and glued back together.

Yep, can’t be three pieces of solid wood. There’s lots of YouTube content for Japanese Joinery that can give you some similar ideas if that design style appeals to you.

Thanks for the info, I was thinking it something had a be cut and glued, would it be easier to cut the sides in half then do it?

It would look better from the side if it was cut half way down on the leg pieces and the center piece that would also make it easier to put together also.

I can think of two easy ways and several complicated ways to build what I can see but I’m seeing only one angle. Post a link.

Based on pic. I would cut the legs in half at the center of the stretcher. The legs and stretcher would be notched into mating parts. Then glue the legs back with the stretcher in place.

On second thought you could make the stretcher in 3 pieces and use dowels or floating tenons to overcome endgrain glue up problems.

What I see is that the stretcher is cut into 3 pieces.
The center is attached between the 2 legs and the ends of the stretcher are attached to the outside of the legs.
No through tenon from what I see. Look at the radius of the arch, it’s not consistent, you can tell the ends were cut off and moved to the outside of the legs.
Not how I would do it, but that’s how it looks like it was done to me.

Ill have to agree with the first comment, that table looks awful. Certainly not a true through tenon, not possible.

If I were to do it, I would rip the legs down the center, cut the notches, and glue it back together. Another way, as others side, would be cut the stretcher into three chunks and glue it up that way. Another way, much more challenging, would be to create and actual through-tenon, that goes all the way though the legs and into the end cap, which would have a mortise to mate there.

I think splitting the legs in half would be best, but here is another way.

Cut the mortise in the legs for the through tenon.
Make the stretcher then rip however much you need off the top of it in order to slide it through the mortise.
Then slide the top piece that you ripped off of it through and glue it back on.
