Check out this font, designed by a fellow in North Carolina. I'm curious how you think he made the joint under the bowl and at the base. I'm not going to copy it, just trying to think through some interesting designs for a font and thought this would be an interesting exercise.

Okay. I can see the joint under the bowl as a 3-way miter. That could work.

On the base, every joint I think of wouldn't be strong enough, I don't think. Did you have a specific suggestion for that one?

spline? through the uprights, diagonal brace, and the feet to tie them together and still use the half lap on the "feet"?

Dowell the assembly diagonally through the light colored brace after primary assembly? the dowel would be hidden accept the underside of the feet.

inset a three legged plywood "key" into the underside of the three way?

I'm still not sure how one would do the base, with the legs coming together, and then the base, and how to attach all that for a strong joint.
