I made this kitchen table by “salvaging” the legs of an old table, and making the aprons and new top with breadboard ends. As with most of the furniture that I build, I like to leave a small reminder that the wood came from a tree – hence the small “crack” you see in the second picture. The tabletop allowed me to learn how to make some pretty big mortises and tenons. The breadboards were drawbored from the bottom. Handplaning the top was quite a workout.
