Haunched M/T.. Why is the haunch necessary? Sorry, just my brain thinking? again… I did an experiment this week using some scrap poplar to make a leg and apron. I did one set with and one without a haunch. I then put the apron in my bench vice and flexed the leg to rack the joint. I found no difference that I could detect when forcing the joint to fracture. I’ll still use a haunch but not sure it is worth the extra work.
