Can anyone tell me what kind of table leg design this is in the pic below? I’m thinking about building something similar, but want to do some research on the best way to fasten the legs. I’d prefer to use brackets (if I can find something that will work) so I can remove the legs if needed, but I’m not set in stone.
This is one of my first projects like this, so I want to keep iit simple in design and materials for a learning process.
Basic overview of what I’m thinking: table top about 7ft x 40inch x 30inch high (for a dining room), will probably use a piece of plywood for the top (I don’t have jointer right now, plus it’d be cheaper considering this is more a “practice project”).
I think I understand the basic physics of the leg & support, but I haven’t been able to find much about “rules” with the span or angles with this type of design… but I’m mainly interested in the best way to attach the legs to the table.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
