I have a 42×18 x 1 3/8” piece of Myrtlewood and a 52×14 x 1 1/8” piece of Walnut with live edges that I’d like to make into a coffee table that stands at 18” high to the top of the table. The Myrtlewood is to be the top. I was thinking two wide (14”) Walnut legs. I will use all the live edges on one side. I want to do a Wedged Mortise and Tenon joint for the legs. So the Walnut will be exposed through the top of the table with some Myrtlewood wedges to hold the joint (with glue) real sturdy. Typically two wide legs would sit parallel to each other, but what if I situated them perpendicular to each other, apart of course? (like this l — or l l ) If they were perpendicular it would really show off the Walnut form all angles.
I want to keep this table really clean and simple looking.So my questions are:
Thanks for looking, any and all answers/opinions are welcome!
