Hi John, most of the smaller shaker tables didn’t have breadboards as far as I know. The bigger ones had breadboards to help keep the boards aligned. Anyhow, here’s one I made recently. Shaker Table. The legs are a little beefy, but I made it that way because it’s going to have to hold up a fish tank. Also, the top is 3/4” thick and the apron is 4 5/8”.

Karson’s table legs are a little more typical in proportion as far as shaker design goes.

Todd Clippinger made a lovely hall/entry table that could be scaled to your specs. This is the one that inspired my version, but he says he doesn’t consider it shaker. Looks shaker to me, but I’m just an amateur.
