i am gluing up some 4”sq table legs with 6/4 quarter sawn white oak. I was considering a lock-miter joint but thats kinda out because of the thickness of the lumber. I saw the leg glue-up article in the latest WOOD mag and have considered that…. which consists of 4 pcs with mitered edges and a sq pc in the middle….
my big concern is that the miters will open up with it being kept outside. so i have debated titebond 3, gorrilla glue, or epoxy for the adhesive.
the next big question is what is the best option for the finnish? There I have considered a first coat of resin from West systems an a marine urethane for a final coat…
any suggestions on any of the above? Thanks
