Nice. I've been wondering how that table turned out. How did you attach the bottom level to the legs?If I might make a suggestion . . . when you compose your photographs, leave a little more "everything else" in--the objects seem crowded in by the borders.
Thanks for the tip, I'll try to do that next time. As for the shelf, the breadboard ends have small tenons on the ends of them that are mortised directly into the legs. This way when the main part of the shelf expands, the breadboard ends will keep the shelf from forcing the legs apart.
Yes, shelf, that's the word I was looking for. "Bottom level" sheesh. What's the tenon like? 1/3 the breadboard thickness? Is it kind of like a little square chipped out above and below? Is there anything else securing it to the legs like a fox wedge or a pin or a dovetail or something? Just glue?
The tenon is about 3/4" square and about 1" long. It is only glued because they are mainly resisting forces pushing down on the shelf, not apart.
