took my pieces over to the table, saw and shaved off the edge to get rid of the rounded edges, and then I put it through the planer to get rid of all the rough edges. But if you don't have a planer, you can use a sander as well to hold the tabletop together I decided to try out dowels. I've never actually used them before. So I used this self-centering dowel jig, and then I drilled my holes and lined them up carefully.
What you can do is cut out notches that are about the depth of a 2x4, which is about an inch and a half, and so what I did was I took my table saw and I lowered it to about an inch and a half on the table And then I ran it through the table saw multiple passes until I had a good opening for a notch to add a stretcher in, and once I ran it through, the table saw.
Next, I used the same process for making the table top or the bench top to create the bench legs, but instead, I glue two together to make it more similar to the size of a 4x4 that way saving money so to attach the end aprons. I did the dowels, the wooden dowels and, to be honest, it was quite difficult to get things lined up, so I wouldn't go this route. I would use supports to add on to the sides and then nail down your side apron, to strengthen your legs on the bench.
