or more simply it s just a matter of using tenon joints instead of screwing things together like in the first pic?


- Spikes

This. A well fit mortise & tenon joint is extremely strong in multiple directions and does an excellent job of resisting racking forces. Now take a horizontal M&T joint for the stretchers and combine with a vertical M&T joint from the legs to the top and you have increased the rigidity exponentially because of the different directions.
