« Part 3: Cleaning up main panel and distractions Part 4 of Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table series Part 5: Breadboard ends »

After considering my options on how to achieve the interlocking bridle joint with the aprons and legs, and realizing my 8” dado stack want going to have the depth necessary. I made up a quick tenoning jig from a scrap of plywood and some pieces of red oak. Ended up pretty decent and rode the fence fairly securely, not the smoothest but manageable.

Joints came out well with the single blade though I need to clean up the bottom of the cut with a chisel before assembly. Aprons fit well, some are a little looser than others but all acceptably secure.
