Looking for Joinery Suggestions

Postby ebelg2000 » Mon Oct 22, 2018 6:37 pm

Hi all! I found the attached table design in the 3D warehouse and was wondering if any of the woodworkers had any suggestions for how you would go about building the table, ie where and what type of joinery would you use. Thanks in advance for your input.

I'd probably notch the legs for the shelf and use Dominoes (because I have the machine) or dowels to joint the shelf to the legs. I'd make the apron in quarters and join those to the sides of the legs with Dominoes or dowels or possibly sliding dovetails.

I'd center the shelf between the legs and reduce the thickness of everything a bit. It looks a bit heavy to me. I might also consider putting stretchers between the legs and then put the shelf on the stretchers.

Dave, Thank you for the knowledgable feedback, that was very helpful! Was your suggestion of adding the stretchers at the bottom to add more strength to that connection or more for esthetics? Thanks again.

Hi Glenn,

I was thinking of stretchers as mostly easier to fit between the legs although it would allow a stronger connection due to the increased surface area. I might make the shelf smaller in diameter or consider omitting the shelf. Or, if you want to make a feature of the stretchers and have a shelf, you could make the shelf as sectors to fit in the L of the stretchers.

Round Table.png

I like Dave R's suggestions. I'd do things a little differently, though. Like Dave said, everything looks a little too heavy. So I'd change the inner curve of the legs to make them thinner. I'd do the skirt as one piece, bricklaying pieces of secondary wood, using a router to make it circular, and veneering the outer face at the end. I'd also enlarge the top a bit: If you continue the outside curve of the leg, the top meets it. The legs wouldn't be notched over the skirt; instead, I'd cut dovetails on the inside of the skirt and fit the legs in them.
Finally, since this looks like an occasional table, it probably won't have to support lots of weight or withstand lots of force. So I'd omit stretchers.
Hope this helps.
Best,
dh

Dave H, thank you also for the suggestions. I need to spend a little time with the model to incorporate some of the changes and see how the big boss likes it. Thanks again for your input.
