I’m hoping to duplicate a project (Bed Side Table) by a fellow LumberJock. I know how to connect the top to the base (tabletop connectors), but I don’t know how to connect the lower shelf. Since the lower shelf is solid wood, I have to consider the expansion and shrinkage that will certainly occur. Am I right?
Are there some techniques I should know about that would allow me to join this shelf to the sides and still not crack over time?
(I realize that I could simply ask the creator of this version how he connected his, but I’m hoping this post and its answers will be helpful to others as well. I’m also hoping I’ll get a variety of options.)
