I intend on screwing the back rail to the top and using those offset things
that fit into slots for the sides, but how do you fasten the front rail?
Can I use the offset things, leaving room for expansion, assuming the wood
in January is as small as it will ever be?
The table is 60" long by 15" wide, butternut.
I checked two old tables I have, cherry and oak. They have survived for
years despite being screwed on all four sides; so maybe I am making too big
a deal out of this?
