Hello everyone!

I have another question concerning the Western Red Cedar Garden Swing I'm working on. The backrest is crowned with an arc and sunbeam. The sun and rays will be inset 3/16" from the face of the arc like the backrest slats below it. The arc is already attached permanently (not the best order) so I can't remove it to secure the rays to it or get better access to the parts. I can't glue the end grain, so do you have any tips for fasteners that would work well here? Pocket screws aren't really an option, as the rear will be very visible. The entire bench is done with dowel joints, but that's not possible now since I can't sandwich the pieces in between the arc and top rail.

Thanks!

Biscuits for the tops of the rays. Make the
sun a 3-layer sandwich and cut tenons in
the smaller ends of the rays. Glue the biscuit
ends first then assemble the sun around the
tenoned ends.
