The assembly instructions show that the legs are the standard knockdown style with the mitered block behind the apron. I will of course attach the legs to the apron using M & T joints. The shelf is attached to the legs using pocket screws.
Is there a better way to secure that joint? If I do use pocket screws how much material do I need to leave on the Maple legs? Any other ideas or design tweak suggestions?
I am planning on having the legs taper from 1 1/2" to 7/8" over 22" leaving 3" untapered for the aprons.
