I’m interested in building some slab table style furniture. I have a source for 2-2½” dry lumber. While I don’t have to worry about vertical forces, the table may be subject to some “racking” forces. Unequal wood movement should not be much of a consideration since legs & top will be from the same stock and not in a cross grain situation.
Is a series of 1½” tenons sufficient for the joints? Or what should I consider?
