Building Hall Table with Shelf (Need help with Shelf)

Recommended Posts

As topic states I'm in the design and planning stages of building a hall table with shelf. I'm going to build something similar to Corey's Occasional Table in the view's section: http://www.thewoodwh...t_type=tables-2

I'm curious on the best way to mount or type of joint to use for the bottom shelf to allow for wood movement since it appears the shelf is trapped inside the legs. I'm thinking of notching the legs to allow for the shelf to sit on and leaving a gap in the rear legs to allow for movement (might not be that noticeable in the rear). Any other ideas putting a shelf on the table?
