I finally have had time to start working on my workbench. I'm using the FWW design from the Shop and Tools edition from 2 years ago. I'm currently working on the base. I'm using hard maple for the legs, trestles, and rails.
Here's my question....
I'm glueing up 3/4 stock to make it to the final deminsions (3"x3" and 3.5"x3.5"). The plan calls for the legs to have tenons on both ends for the feet and trestles and through mortises for the top and bottom rails. My thought was to have the face of the legs facing out front. This would result in the mortises being cut through the glued edges (side to side of the leg) and the tenons would be cut across the edges (front to back of the legs). Is there any reason to worry about having the tenons be a series of glued pieces and the mortises running through a couple of glued pieces?
Does this make sense???
