Shelf

Recommended Posts

Since you mentioned the domino, I'd go with that and epoxy rather than yellow glue.  You'll get better adhesion on the end grain with the epoxy.  You could also improve the joint a bit if you did a slight mortise that fit the whole vertical.  

Cool looking piece!

I was planning on the domino although I'm still learning the use of it. Then I ran into the problem in middle section. Guess I could just make sure they are in different locations on shelf?

Yep..  Clamp a straight edge on the shelf to rest the domino against will help with alignment as well.

Kev is right . Clamp a straightedge along one side  of each leg. Put the base of the Machine on the straightedge to  plunge into the slab, clamp the leg to a flat surface and put the base of the machine on the flat surface to plunge into the end of the leg. That uses the same reference surface for each cut .
