Are the breadboards attached with pocket screws as well as the top attached to the stretchers and apron with pocket screws? I fear that in a couple of years, this table may begin to get a little wonky due to wood movement. It looks very nice though.

Sorry Jamison but I agree with TTAYLOR it looks great but all pocket screw joinery on breadboard ends is a formula for disaster due to wood movement issues. Designers building with that kind of joinery are all over the place given how easy it is to build,but they don’t take into account how long the furniture will last or wood movement.

Yea I figured I would get a little push back by posting this project here. To be totally honest, I have built lots of tables this way, one of which has been outside in my screen room for 3 years, and all of which I haven’t had any issues with.

I’m not disagreeing with either of you and I totally understand the theory. Maybe I’m just incredibly lucky or is it a possibility that this is a rare occurrence? Have either of you actually seen this happen?

Yeah, I have. I did the same thing before, and I ended up trying to fix it and relevel the table, but I couldn’t get it right because i had no idea what was happening or how to stop it. I had one leg about a half inch off the ground and couldn’t get it back straight. Only took a year and a half to get that way. I do live in an area with a crazy swing in temp and humidity annually though. And it was construction lumber which is not exactly known for it’s stability. I learned from it though, haha. That table, previously a dining table, got turned into shelves for potted plants outside.

Best of luck to you, perhaps it’ll work out fine for you since you’ve had good experience with it so far.
