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,
But now..... I require the area where the bracket resides to be free of
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.
