Floating-Top Table with Three-Way Corner Joint
“I designed this floating-top table and wasn’t sure I would ever build it,” Dean says. But then he was given some thick slabs of soft maple that were ideal for the 2-1/2-in.-square legs and frame. “I came up with a three-way corner joint to keep the overall design clean, but add interest when you take a closer look,” he says. When the corner joint is assembled, the short rails lock the legs and long rails in place. Six cherry supports float the top and join to the frame with asymmetrical double tenons.
