I assembled my bench last night and because my aprons are only 10 1/4 in. (got carried away with some planning). I can’t use bolts through the aprons because of the tenons on top rail and if I use screws they will go into the tenon. The bench is rigid with just the wedges but the aprons will pop-off if I bang from the back. This might not be a problem if I drive my wedges deeper.
Two questions if you would be so kind.
1. Should I use lag screws to hold the aprons even if they go into the tenon?
2. My wedges protrude past the bottom of the apron. Should I flush cut or let them protrude?
