New to woodworking and am trying my hand at a sofa table design and above is what I have come up with in Sketchup. The materials are maple and mahogany.
The L-Shaped legs are going to be connected with a long bevel cut. The grey on the legs are aluminum angles that will be screwed to the legs.
The bands on the on the ends of the tabletop would be an aluminum flat. Would screwing this into the end grain impede the movement of the wood too much?
I am looking for advice on how to attach the table top to the two rails and the two rails to the apron to create the lifted tabletop effect.
Thanks for any input,
