Pondering this joint. I want the top, red apron, and green rail to make one solid piece, and the legs to be removable.
I’m not confident enough to attempt a 8cm deep through mortise by hand, and I want to preserve as much of the leg section as possible, for rigidity. My current plan is to half-lap the leg and glue a piece to the apron to close the mortise, but the rail position interferes…
Ah well, the joys of engineering 🙂
