I’ve designed a table I want to build for my father in law for Christmas. I’ve been designing a lot of mission style furniture lately, and I think I’ve maybe bitten off more than I can chew in actual practice. I’m new to woodworking, but I have gotten to the point where I can do hand cut dovetails very well. I have good hand tools IE chisels, planes saws, including a very nice dozuki. I do have power tools but so far prefer to do most of the work by hand. Soo, this little table here. I like the look of the vertical risers. So far I’ve chosen mortise and tenon joints, but that is going to be a lot of work, and I’m wondering if there might not be a better way, so I’m attaching two pictures, one is a rendered image of the Sketchup file, and the other is a wireframe showing the construction. If anybody has any suggestions as to a better way to attach the risers, please advise!! Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated.

and the wireframe

Thanks,
Jerry

Thanks, that’s a great idea, I was getting all twisted up thinking about chopping all those holes out with a chisel…
