”Plans? It all looks so simple.”

Yeah! Just like some of the toys I used to buy for the kids at Christmas. On the box it said ”All you need to assemble this (whatever) is a screwdriver, a pair of pliers and an adjustable wrench”

And I always added ”Plus an Engineering Degree from MIT”

Here’s a link to the designer/builder of that table. If the link doesn’t take you directly to the table look down the list and fine “large round table” or just scroll down the page, it there.

It looks like you have an extraneous “on” at the end of that link to the blog.
