The base is made up of square legs that are joined to rails of the same dimension. Then the construction is reinforced by a second set of slightly narrower rails. The rectangle formed by the legs and top rail is visually divided and reinforced by a second, slightly narrower, rail. This simple arrangement of the rectangle creates a nicely divided space that is both strong and pleasing to the eye. Simple Joints for a Clean Look The key to this design is a base that doesn’t distract the viewer from the intricate top – so I kept the rails and legs at 11⁄2" square.
Mortises are cut into both the legs and aprons with the same jig and at the same settings. With the jig fence reset, mortises for the lower rail (which run across the leg) are also cut. The ends of the tenons are mitered for a stronger joint. Thin strips applied flush with the inside edges create a 1⁄8" reveal between the upper edge of the rails and the tabletop. Corner blocks are glued and screwed into place. They strengthen the corner and provide a way to attach the top. Two Steps for the Base Carefully clean and sand the legs and rails, removing all mill marks before the glue-up.
Hole in the upper center shelf, 11⁄4" from the back edge and centered between the ends. Finish-sand this shelf and the back panel and then assemble these parts using biscuits and glue. Make sure the ends remain flush when you clamp the joint. Finish-sand the lower center shelf. 7 Glue and clamp the shelves between the ends. You can use short clamps to complete this job by clamping 2x2s to the lower shelf. 8 Pocket-screw the back panel to the end panels to keep the base from racking. Use a clamp to back up the glued butt joint.
