White Oak Console Table: Base 2

Once the legs have been mortised it was time to tenon the two side and the rear aprons.

The side aprons are done as most shops cut tenons: 

With a nearly 9 ft rear apron, the same technique was not gonna work. I 
chose to kerf the ends and clean up with a chisel. We shape the tenons a bit more and here is where we end.

Large scale tables should be pegged and if you have time draw bored.

At this point we are ready to put together our leg assemblies, we just need to taper the legs and clean them up.
