Yes, as I had mensioned in this NG previously that I would use wedged tenons, decided against it for the lack of strength of DF.
Tenons going in 50% and are 1" fat, I want to use two bolts per end/side per stretcher and one through the end of each side brace, three 4x4s and one doubled (glued together) 4x4 (4/8) where the end vise mounts through (dual LV tail bench screws mounted through the side brace).
I could only get the 1" width because of the limited and poorly made and designed tenon jig in adult ed. Even then, they all had to be planed down to even fit in the damn thing! ...thank God it's there tho... heh heh.......heh.....cough! ...heh
My question is on the size of the bolts, two bolts going through a leg_to_1"_tenon however far, 6" or 8" long,
should they be 3/8" or 1/2" bolts?
