There are many tricks of the trade packed into this episode, starting with layout and following with joint making; using my mortise guide for both fast layout, then chopping of the mortise holes and laying out the tenons. The leg frames come together quickly, because we have reduced the usual eight mortise and tenon down by half, to just four. With the leg frames made and assembled, we focus on the more complex half housing of the middle of the two rails. The step-by-step instruction shows the layout at an angled position, so that the legs are distanced close to the extreme of the table. This makes the table more stable and less tippy.
