Basically I have some standard metal tubing square legs which I want to affix to a table base. Hopefully the pics attached below show my idea but I am thinking of attaching a wood block on the underside of the metal leg using two metal bolts. Put two pieces of wood on either side of the leg forming part of the apron around it and then attach the metal legs to the apron using custom dowels similar to how it's done in this video https://youtu.be/F-SxsnG7CLc just without glueing it to the top. Alternatively I could just glue together rather than using the dowels.
Once the table is attached to the apron using cleats the metal legs will be wedged between the table top and the apron to which it is joined.
The table is a mix of Australian brushbox and spotted gum weighing around 100kg. Dimensions 2.4m X 1.2m X 320mm. The apron will be straight brushbox dimensions 2m X 800mm X 300mm. The metal legs are 730 mm X 700mm
Looking for advice regarding strength, stability and whether there is a better way to do this.
