Ah, very interesting. You all have given me a lot to think about. Thanks.

I had not considered lap joints. I’ll play around with my model and see how they would play out. I’m already doing that where the x pieces meet in the center anyway.

Yes those are the fasteners I was thinking of, just what came to mind first.

I’ll consider a face frame or thickening the legs a bit probably just doubling up, so 1.5” thick. Could do 3 pieces stacked and rip down the middle for 1-1/16” (ish) thick also.

The overall dimensions are around 46 long, 36 tall, and 15 deep, so LesB was right on.

Thanks again. Give me a couple days and I’ll post a revised model follow up.
