This was a fun project. A friend of mine had triplets and this is her baby shower gift. This project is built out of one sheet of plywood with plenty left over. The chairs were purchased from schooldays.com. I used pocket screws for the apron and reinforced the joint with a 45. The legs are made out of two pieces of 3/4 plywood 27 inches long with a 45 on one side and reinforced with a spline glued in. The legs were attached to the apron using glue and screws. The table is 48” × 30” × 28”ish. The overall dimensions of the leg is 27 inches, the taper begins 9 inches down then tapers to the base of the leg at 2 inches wide. The table top is 1 1/8 inch thick. I got the measurement by gluing and screwing two sheets of plywood, one 3/4 and one 1/2. It is stained with Minwax Jacobean and finished off with two coats of Minwax poly urethane clear satin.
