Hi guys ( and Gals, of course),
I am building my workbench and am beginning my base build using 4×4 DF. My design has a modified H frame at either end with a trestle base and full width bearer on the top ( see blog for pics/plans).
Originally I was going with MT the legs into the bearer and trestle but as I was laying out I suddenly thought that Bridle joints would give me more glueing surface and therefore, potentially, more strength. I would draw bore/pin them just like a MT.
Anyone have any thoughts on this mod?
