Re: The bevel lies in the details: Sofa Table IV

I make Domino buttons that are a little more complicated than yours, but I don't worry about setting the screws too tight and having the tenons bind in their slots or even splitting the top of the apron. I cut a series of narrow mortises in a piece of scrap button stock, with the Domino fence set at the same height as the mortises in the apron. Then I glue the tenons into the button stock and drill and counterbore the holes for the screws through the glued up block and tenon. Finally, I cut this assembly apart into individual button blocks.
