I plan on building a computer table that will have 8 legs. What is the best way to attach the rails to the legs ?
Mortise and loose tenon, dowels, ? Rails are 2 3/4” high x 3/4” thick, legs 2” x 2”. Wood is Oak.

I have found Loose Tenons to be the strongest and most accurate to make and not at all hard to do

I like the idea of loose tenons too.
