This a test leg to a coffee table base. the finished one will be walnut. I'm worried that since the grain is going the wrong way for the tenon it might snap off. It's a 1" X 1 1/2" tenon so there is plenty of glue area. I was thinking about reinforcing the tenon with a dowel. I don't want to see it though. Another though was to make a whole new tenon like what festool domino jointing system uses. Any thoughts on this?
