Hi I'm planning on doing a coffee table round and would like to have 3 leg design. Prob bridle joint on outside but all meeting at centre. How is it best to meet at centre or overlap? They'd be 120 degrees each.

Draw it Graham, or post a link to something similar. It's hard to understand precisely what you are aiming for.

A much less structurally important version on a lamp I made. I incorporated a brass plate as I was worried about strength. There are a few other suggestions from others in the thread..

I just remembered another 3 way joint, my dining table stretcher, its made with a home made 3 ply spline.
Made from beech a thin ply each side of a thicker one.

I have a coffee table with that joint between 3 legs butt-mitred together 2x3 in elm. It’s got 2 sodding great 3-way loose tenons made from 18mm birch ply glued with epoxy, solid it is.
