Advice on long narrow console table
Hi gang! Haven’t been on here in awhile, hope everyone’s well!
So, I’m making a 7’ long x 14” deep table @ 32” height. Doubling up 3/4 ply for the top and supporting with 1 1/2” x 3/4” apron. Should this be sufficient to avoid sagging?
I’m doing 2” square legs. Traditional m&t apron-leg construction but with a design modification. The top of the leg would essentially a through tenon (inside corner), with 1” of material removed on each side, to the depth of the table thickness (1 1/2), upon which the solid edging (1”) will rest - flush to sides of table legs. Solid edging would be mitered with splines. The mortise for the apron, would then begin 1 1/2” down from the top of the leg. If this makes any sense?? In theory should this design be sufficiently strong and stable? I know a drawing would help....will try to get to that tomorrow.
My other question is, I want to a bullnose profile. Again the solid edge is 1 1/2” tall and 1” wide/deep (Doug fir). I’d like fully rounded edges, no cove. What bit/method do you guys recommend? Those large bullnose bits are expensive. Thinking maybe I do a 3/4” roundover on each side? If that radius is even available and not too pricy?
Sorry - lots of questions. Thanks so much!
