Rustic Bar table.
Began with gluing 4 pieces of 2”x10” rough cut Oak. I had a 3” x 12” x 48” solid Oak piece in my scrap pile from sale. This worked perfect for the legs. I cut them to 2 3/4” square, then I used a taper jig to put a taper on 2 sides. The legs then went to my antique Mortise drill. A bit of wax, and it made the 3/8” w mortises very quickly. I cut the aprons on table saw, I used a KREG jig (I was the one that doesn’t like these, I have found a use for it, changed my opinion on them !) TIP: DO NOT DROP drill on floor, I broke the tip off my kreg bit.
I glued, clamped and screwed everything together from underside.
It is SOLID. The table is 32” x 32” which should go through a door so I did NOT make the legs removable. With a bit of wiggling, jiggling, moving things around in my tiny shop I finally got it through my doorway !!!!!!!!!! I used a thinned out paint and coated it with polycrylic.
I am happy with my bar table.

Thanks for looking.
