I made the lower frame which will support the legs for the breakfast tray. For the joinery, I stayed true to the Greene and Greene style and used finger joints. There were two ways to do the finger joints: one where they are symmetrical with the bridle joints in the tray and one were they are not. I thought, for visual interest, that I’d make them unsymmetrical, but now I am second guessing myself. Don’t you hate that? Which way do you think looks better? And by the way, I already made them unsymmetrical so there is no going back. I’d like to hear from you to get your preference anyway.
