Yes the ends are true bread board ends. There are five deep mortises along the 42” lenght. There are zero fasteners expept attaching the corner blocking from apron to apron. All joints are mortise & tenon joints. Just attached the leg to apron details.

Absolutly beautiful. I have been wanting to start a large table like this but am too scared.
I am though a little concerned about what is going on in picture #6. Your work bench and tools just look more like a still life for an advertisement. Its all just too pretty. Mine certainly never looks like that. Well done. Nice tools.

-- Flemming. It's only a mistake if you can't fix it.

This table is beautiful! This is exactly what i want to do for a dining table.

What are the rough dimensions of this table? Is curly maple expensive? How long did this take you to finish? Did you use plans?

Have your say...
