I’m in the process of finishing up a design for a gaming table for my brother-in-law, and would like some input on how to join the corners. I’ve never done anything like this before, so I don’t have any ‘sacred cows’ when it comes to techniques or methods, but I have very limited access to power tools. Everything I’ve done so far on the table has been with hand tools (planes, backsaw, chisels) – and would love to finish it by hand if possible.
Aside from that, here’s what I’ve got so far:
(Table top is 4X8 sheet of plywood, 3/4” thick)—to be used for “Warhammer 40,000” game
You can see, I haven’t quite decided on how to join the table top and trestles together—it is supposed to be easy to take it apart and store against a wall when necessary.
I’ve never done drawers, of any kind, before, so that is something I’ll be learning for this project (any tips, resources, or suggestions appreciated).
Given what you see, and what I have on hand, what are your impressions, and what joint(s) would you suggest for the corner of the table?
Thanks a bunch guys!
