I made three of these as my first furniture projects other than foot stools. Believe it or not I tapered the legs with a Porter Cable circular saw using a jig that held the leg blank at the right angle, then my saw ran atop wood rails with a straight edge on one side. Fairly simple really and almost easier than using a table saw. The aprons attach to the legs with tenons. The top is attached with shop made wood buttons. SYP finished with linseed oil and Danish Oil.

Crazy grain on that pine and a nice table to boot.

Nice tables. You can do a lot with a circular saw when that is all you have to use. Nice job building them…..Jim
