I had meant to mention the way I dealt with the dowels, the leg joinery, but there was not the opportunity.

Here are the legs, and you can see the ugly dowels. What I did was to turn them upside down, and remove the dowelled section in the taper cut ...




First, the legs were morticed ..




I built a simple fixture for my sliding table saw ...




The nail holes were filled with coloured epoxy, which disappeared after the finish was applied ...




And then smoothed ...




I was asked (when I posted this photo elsewhere) why I planed into the grain. The answer is ‘because I can with a closed chipbreaker’ Smile No, the real answer is because it was easier to keep track of the mark demarcating the flat section.

Now I can see why you cut it down a bit. It fits the space perfectly.

Good job!
