Hey guys, I’m starting on our dining room table this weekend and have created a few designs. My wife was bouncing around the net and saw this table and loves the legs. What I don’t understand is the legs go down from the table top with vertical grain the connect to a piece that’s cross grain so it appears the entire glue joint would be end grain to side grain. How can this be strong? I had drawn this up a couple different ways on my notepad and figure it can be done with some mortise and tenons but wanted to see if I was missing something.
I’ll start this weekend with the benches she wants for the table so I can see if the joinery works out like planned. The benches will have the same legs.
That’s the only image we found online, you will have to zoom in on the legs. Wish I had a better photo.
