seeking knock-down leg alternatives...


OK lets see if I can clearly describe what I need help with....
I am designing a table to be manufactured in quantity that requires a unique leg attachment.
I have been using the stamped sheet metal brackets/hangerbolts. Easy, strong.
But now..... I require the area where the bracket resides to be free of anything.
Basically, if you were to birdseye view the table with only the aprons and legs, you would see a perfect square, without the corners obscured with the diagonal brackets and protruding wingnut.
I need that, and it needs to be easily assembled by my not so handy clients. (shipped broken down)
What do you think? I was thinking a notch/dovetale into the apron - sliding the leg up into the table from below and driving a pin to hold it..... but my experience is that all the tolerances would need to be damn near spot on. I would love something more forgiving. It could protrude a bit on the inside, but not much.
Thanks!!!

I've been thinking and I came up with the aprons coming to a corner and a hanger bolt coming up out of the top of the leg up into the corner of the aprons where a large void is cut out allowing a wingnut. I would have a portion of the leg, perhaps a centimeter thick run up to the full height.
Does that make any sense?
