Here’s a table that I’ve made with my son Daniel. They were made without breadboard edges.

The top on this table is 22” square, the apron is 4” wide, the legs are 1 1/2” wide at the top and tapering to 1” on the inside surfaces (the outer edges are straight. The top is 3/4” or so but it has a taper to 1/2” at the edge which gives it visually thinner top. It does not have a breadboard top. It is 30” tall to the top surface which is about what my kitchen table is.

If you make it a few inches wider you would have a little more room between the legs to get a chair and your grandmothers legs under the table.

The aprons are 15” long Shoulder to shoulder (visually) But they have tenons into the legs It is 18” to the outside of the legs.

Dan’s was made with white pine, I made mine out of cherry. Mine has a thicker top, closer to 1” thick. I didn’t see any need to planing the wood into sawdust.

Any questions send me a message.
