Great minds think alike.  That’s what I had in mind.  I’m also consisting adding a couple of braces across the skirt with 1 “8” in the middle

skirt = apron???

describe what you have in mind for braces if you would..

I wouldn't put an ''8'' in the middle...

 

mere mortals won't be able to pick that table up so when it gets moved it will be shove/pushed/drug around which will be tough on the apron/leg joints so here's something you might want to consider...

I have seen brackets like the top picture but not the bottom picture. Are the wood brackets bought or homemade?

home made...

the homemade version should have a key cut into it to receive the corner of the leg...

your dado blade set over to 45° is just the ticket for this and the key way helps w/ fastening the bracket to the leg...

not only do those brackets help the corner junction strength immensely they work hard at keeping the leg from getting ''laid over''when the table is slid around...

 

note...

use modified truss headed (see pic) or pan head screws w/washers to screw the brace in...

if you use a full threaded screw, drill a clearance hole for it in the bracket...

FH screws tend to split the wood when put under duress... think splitting wedge...

instead of lagging the leg I use GRK or RSS structural screws... (4th picture)...  you get strength w/o the risk of splitting the leg...

Both styles of bracing (brackets) have been around for a long time and either will work just fine on this.

since the 1st table anyways...

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
