Those corner brackets look interesting. Did you mortise and tenon the legs and panels? Or do those brackets hold it all together? Can you post a link to those brackets?
Thanks, the corner brackets are standard brackets for table legs - got 'em at Woodcraft (http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/200...le-Leg--1.aspx
). And yes, the stretchers are also mortised and tennoned into the legs. It's sturdy! Won't have to worry about this one getting wobbly after a few years.
"I'm guessing those saw kerfs I see on the interior of the piano skirt are relief cuts...correct? If so what type of pattern and how many do you usually follow on a piece? Is there are hard fast calculation of the number of relief cuts and how far apart, that correlates with how wide the piece is?"
Actually the saw kerfs are there to anchor the curved ends of the corner brackets. The extra saw kerfs are mistakes. I just cut'em all the same and left 'em in there thinking many people would think they're there for a reason and won't know the difference - almost worked.
Thanks, it was rather fast, especially for me. It was my lucky weekend. While routing the roundover on the seat, I splintered off a huge chunk on a corner. I took it slow and used several passes but still splintered a corner. Later, I dug around in the sawdust and found the largest splinter, which fit perfectly. I glued it in place, sanded it down and you can't even tell there was a problem - my lucky day.
