Building Table Base - Attaching Large (5") table leg to apron.
I am building a large farmhouse table 10' x 40". I am trying to decide how to secure legs to base/apron. I was looking around the evil internet. I saw a bunch of examples with pocket screws which seems a bit suspect even though I often use pocket screws. I also saw some examples where apron wasnt attached to the leg at all, there was just a metal brackets in corner which made the legs removable.
I am doing a chunky 5" table leg with a big table 10' table. I have a feeling the correct answer is mortise and tenon and maybe a corner brace. For reasons I cant explain I cant find a good write up on how to secure table lets to apron that is not either sponsored by Kreg or written up by someone that has a Shabby Chic blog.
I have not done mortise and tenons before but feel that I could. Is this the way to go? Anyone know where I can find a good write up on how to do this.
