So I am getting rid of our round dining(I hate round tables in smaller spaces, rectangle tables are so much more useful).
my questions are on dimennsions, Its going to be maybe between 48-60 inches long haven’t quite decided. But my questions are, as follows;
how tall should the table be? whats standard table height?
How wide should the table be as well?
How thick should the aprons and legs be?
I’d like to keep within whole number ratios if possible(i’d like to start including that in all my design but im very new to woodworking and designing as well.
I was going to go with a trestle table design but I think I’m going to go with four square legs and and apron(shaker I believe)and make the next one a trestle design.
It will be made out of some reclaimed 5×6 oak beams from recycle north in Burlington, VT. Got a great deal I think 2 buck a linear foot.
thanks in advanced
