yes, I’m looking to mill the walnut to be 1in thick, 2.5 in high (match table depth) and the lengths to size.

My initial thought was to use a forstner bit to attach it with some small screws/bolts an then use a plug to cover it… thinking about it more, wanting it to look good, I wasn’t sure if there were other ways to attach to the side of the table.

Attached is an image of one side that had a dado in it, there other is completely flat. Straight glue for something that will be used for years, didn’t seem strong enough or lasting, though I’ve seen some very old butcher blocks only held with glue.

Assuming I can square up the sides to match at a 45, or cut them to fit if they are off a little.
