Here’s a coffee table I recently completed based on plans that were in Woodsmith.
The original plans called for an oak table with a glass top (optional solid top) and was 38”x30”. The last photo in the gallery shows a picture from the original plans.
The one I built is made of cherry, and has a solid panel top 54”x39” (this was the largest solid panel I’ve glued up, so was a bit nervous about that part). The number of spindles was increased from 13 per side to 21 as a result of the increased width, but I think it still came out well-proportioned.
The leg/stretchers were done using basic mortise & tennon joints, and the top is secured with table top clips that are fitted into biscuit-joiner-cut slots.
