My first attempt at nice furniture! Trying to make simple, good-solid-wood pieces that are nicer than the beat-up. 30 year old (veneered) we have. All glued dados/notches, for legs, and routered pits on underside of top for the legs to glue into. Used polyurethane glue since the joints were end-to-side or end-to-face and that is supposed to be better for these type joints (though lots of disagreements about glues – kind of like finishes!) It does foam out of joints, I wiped the join areas w water before gluing.
