I'm building a coffee table out of a live edge walnut slab. It's about 5'x30"x1.125"
For the legs I've made some blue-stain ponderosa blocks, 18"x15"x2.25"
Any suggestions on how to join the legs to the table. I was about to cut tenons on the legs. But given the thickness of the top, I'm not sure the length I can achieve - maybe 1/2" - will be worthwhile. But it would increase the glued surface area significantly.
There will be an arched piece of steel tying things together on each side as well.
