to all the carpenters or those who have experience with joining wood together or simply anybody who wants to contribute.
i am doing a little very simple projector table which measures roughly 20 x 30 x 20 cm with a plate thickness of 1 - 1, 6 cm the legs something around 3 x 3 cm. i want to cut the corners from the plates and join the legs smoothly flush into it. probably using biscuit joiners exactly in the corners would be the best method but i dont have any specific saw for this only a regular makita hand drill with no speed lock, so i might have to use ordinary wood dowels. the problem is that i cant put them on both sides of the corners since i naturally would not get them in at the same time.
so i am stuck with two options, either i use two or even one wood dowel diagonally which would mean i have to drill very exact in a 45° angle which may be difficult and end up in not getting the legs on flush, or i only use one at each long side of the board. since the table is very small and the legs will be glued additionally and the mini projector is not heavy, both options may be ok but they seem very unprofessional. drilling from outside is optically also not an option. any ideas?
