I have a knack for making projects harder on myself. The wife wanted a demilune table for the hallway and of course she had to choose a design with no plans for to assistance.
I have replicated everything except the joinery necessary to join the sides. At first I thought I could cut the angles then join with biscuits. I have been playing with mortise and tenons and would like to build a solid piece of furniture using these methods, but I can seem to figure out how to do the joint on the side where the angles are. Any help out there from the more experienced?
I could always pocket screw the sides, but again, I like to make things more difficult. Is mortise and tenon even possible on this table? My focus is to build a very solid piece of furniture. I have utilized mortise and tenon on the front (the drawer piece) and back. Is this where I would use a spline joint?
Looking for some wisdom….Thank you.
