I decided to do a face glue up of the slab and the legs but make everything where no cutting or chopping of joinery is needed. Also because of its intended use I didn't prep any of the 2X4s. The slab cutting and glue up took just under 2 hours. I expect the leg and stretcher cutting and glue up will be about the same.
Bottom line unless there is a major hiccup I should have MsBubba smiling and playing with her new pug mill before the weekend is over.
Here is the slab ready for glue up.
The slab glued up, I'll wait for about 45 minutes before knocking out the leg mortise plugs.
