Hi everyone, I am starting my first ever woodworking project, and I may now know less than when I started!! the short version is I have two big pieces of Mesquite wood and 4 pieces of walnut to put in the center and along the end's to make the table longer and wider. I am trying to come up with the best way to join the pices together for strength. have looked at pocket holse with a kreg joint, have thought about butterfly joints, but feel that would make it too busy, am not convinced gluing would be strong enough for a table top, especially as it would be difficult to clamp!! I have attached (hopefully) a rough picture to illustrate what I am trying to do! any advice would be awesome! thanks.
