I’m designing a small coffee table, about 30 in square and about 18 in. high. The legs are 3 in solid wood (possibly turned), a drawer in one side, a shelf below about 2 in. off the floor. The top will be solid wood made from laminated boards about 1.5 in thick. The problem is, how to attach the top to the frame without resorting to pocket holes (which I hate). My initial idea is to cut a rabbet along the top edge of each of the aprons into which I would glue and screw a strip that protrudes to the inside flush with the top of the aprons and use this strip to screw through and into the bottom side of the top. Am I making this too complicated, over thinking it or ???
