I am planning to make a kind of tall coffee table (well 2 actually) – and the design I have in mind is to make the legs by joining two pieces of 500*150*25mm at the long edges in a kind of “L” shape.
Although I am quite new, I do seem to be able to plane something pretty flat, so the easiest option maybe to simply glue them together… maybe adding a pocket screw or two for added strength … as I think this is maybe some kind of heresy, I am trying to think about a more traditional joint(s) for the legs.
I am not yet confident enough with dovetails, and I am not sure if I want to have dovetails evident even if I can make nice tidy ones.
Another option could be rebate one piece, and have a housing joint in the other, so they would slide fit and then I glue them …
I will be making this in Cherry.
Any ideas gratefully accepted .. as this is actually keeping me awake at night !
