I like the clean lines of these tables. I’m thinking that a table like this made of some type of hardwood, oak maybe, would make a beautiful breakfast table. ( with your permission of course)
If you don’t mind my asking,what are the dimensions of the top and how did you attach the legs to the feet? I think one of these will have to to on my long list of things to build. Thanks for the insperation.

i also wanted to craft them out of some type of hardwood, customer wanted to save money, returant that they move into was in need of alot of work, they wanted to have a cost saving funtional table, the tables are 48”L x27”w x29”h feet was attached with dados and 2each- 3” screws these tables saved them alot of money! material wise the tables were about $30. each to build, i rather build them for you, but go ahead and have some fun, if you need more details, or plans you are welcome to them.

Looks like a good commission! Nice lines. I see you used ply on the top. A good idea because of movement against the miters. Thanks for sharing.

They look great! I wouldn’t mind having one in my kitchen. What finish did you use?

Cool table, ply doesnt look bad at all with the edge, the legs have style. What finish is that.

Great design! I think this could transform well into other furniture like benches, outdoor picnic table, hall/sofa table. The elegant clean lines make it ideal platform for displaying treasures on (glass art, photos, special feast, etc…). The legs resemble a classic drafting table.

The only thing that could make that table look better is a big plate of biscuits and gravy. Nice work, Cobra 5 !
