Topic tags/keywords: wood magazine pub counter

Hi all, I am back after nearly a year away from the site! Anyway, I am looking for some help resizing the latest editions of Wood Magazines pub table and the chairs too. The plans call for a 42” table height and the chair backs rise to the same height. My problem is that I need to make this set at a “counter” height of 36”. I am not certain how to obtain the same porportions for the foot rails and chsir rails. Kind of has me a bit puzzled. Can anyone help?

seems like you could just adjust your leg height on table and chairs, then cut the dadoes for leg braces at
the specs?

Reduce the chair leg height by the difference between the plan height and the desired height for the table. Everything should be the same. I would think the chair and foot rails would remain the same.

That’s an interesting take on it. It did occur to me but it just didn’t seem right to me. I’m doing a mock up of the table tomorrow, we’ll see what happens.

RC, that does seem to be the answer, I’ll post my mock-up or mess-up results tomorrow!
