I just finished three table for the holy water bowls in our temporary church. They are 30” high and I used the golden rectangle to size the tops. They are 10×16.180. The front edge of the top is a 28” radius and the front apron is a 25 1/2” radius They are made from red oak and I added some pictures of the build process:
I had to make a new taper fixture for the legs because I could not find the one I used last time. I think it was a quick and dirty one and I threw it out after I used it. Cutting these legs on this fixture was so much fun I was sad when I got all 12 legs cut and had to quit!! It is slick and safe! I’ll keep this one.
The aprons are doweled and glued to the legs and I added a Kreg screw between the dowels for good measure.
I used my home made universal doweling jig to located and drill all the dowel holes. The Kreg fixture is mounted on my home made set up too..
The tops are doweled into the tops of the legs and fastened with screws through the aprons. The tops are not glued on so they could be replaced if they got water damaged.
The tables are finished with 3 coats of satin polyurethane and scuff waxed.
