Using cleats to join 3 boards table top.
I was reading Woodsmith recently and an article talked about joining 3 boards for a table top with cleats. We have some decent coffee tables (the bases of the tables are stong) but they are covered with veneered MDF that is really gross. I want to replace the veneered MDF with maple boards that I will join with cleats. I do have a router so I could cut a slot with my router in the sides of the boards and join the boards that way. I would like to use the cleat method and was wondering about some pros and cons of joining boards for a coffee table in this manner. Thanks in advance...
