Jocks,

I need some help!

I’m a bit paralyzed regarding my next step on a woodworking bench build. I need suggestions / recommendations on mortise and tenon choice for connecting the bench top (hard Maple) to the base (Ash). I’ve got a few pictures here of the work in progress. My plan is to cut the joinery and flip the top over and set it on the base. At that point, I’ll flatten the topside with the router sled, etc.

I’ve seen lots of different mortise and tenon combinations, but not sure which way to go. I know I want the front of the bench to be flush with the legs, (back side will have a 2” overhang) and am planning to add a face vise to the front left.

Thoughts?

Have your say...
