John: The table I made went from 2 1/8” at the top and tapered down to 1 1/8” at the bottom, but like I said I was going to put a fish tank on it, so thats why the larger size. I think Karsons formula of 1 1/2” at the top down to 1” at the bottom should be fine as long as you use a strong hardwood such as oak. It depends on what the load is going to be. If you make it from pine, I’d upsize the legs for a kitchen table. Hope this helps.
