Coffee Table Undershelf

20130825-145657.jpgGrabbing my measurement and marking tools I began laying out the mortises for the undershelf. after all what good is a coffee table if you have no where to stash the games and magazines when the neighbors come over.

The plans call for through mortises on the sides of the shelf although as I look at it I think I may not cut them through. Seems that it may be too much joinery and instead of adding to the piece draw the eye away for the whole. All of the final pieces are placed on the shelf long rails and I sat and stared contemplating the effect of the exposed joints.

While I was day dreaming (contemplating) my design adviser stopped by and affirmed that the piece did not require any more through joints. Why i even contemplated it I will never know the answer was so clear!
