I don’t believe a word of it. Very nice table, GMman. Hope you are enjoying the summer. I got my wood in when my grandsons were home last week. They are a big help.

I will have another photo as soon as I set it inside, it is made the same as I made my computer table except for the pull out for my key board I needed more room.
I will have a small table in between for my printer.

That firewood makes a great table.

Slick. I have the capability to do pocket screw joints, but haven’t used it yet.

Kinda winding up my computer install, except for a bunch of small programs and details, so hopefully will get back in the shop. One computer task left… computer that I was using up till a month ago died as I was bringing this one on line! What timing. Have to investigate and see what it will take to make it go again. Fortunately I back up daily to an external drive, so no data lost.

Have to finish a project table top, then the miter arms on my super sled, and then a pocket screw and plywood computer cart for work. So that is the reason for my interest in the pocket screws here.

Have a good one….........51 deg at 0630 hrs here, clear skies. Hard work week, not much time for anything else…........

I like what I’ll call the “interior stretcher” in the third photo. That’s an interesting way to keep the leg from twisting! I’ve not seen that done before. Thanks for sharing that.

Nice table GMman. I have the same router as you have. My trigger is acting a little funny but other than that it works well. Any complaints?

Robb and All

Re the stretcher, I used a similar technique on a study desk I built for my son about 30 years ago, and it is still in use for one purpose or another….....

.....and a closeup….....

This apparently is a very strong construction techique, because, I guarantee this desk has been abused…........I did this without plans, just conjured it up myself…..........great minds think in the same circles, GMman…....(-:

Nice Job! I’m always looking for good ways to join a table’s top to the legs, and this way looks like a great option.

Keep it up!!

I too thought this was a great way to join table legs. I like it.

Nice table! My brother build me a table over 20 years ago with legs constructed like the ones in the photos. That thing has been so abused from use in a preschool for 15 years and again on my front porch for about 7 years. It could use a refinish job but it is still perfectly level (I just checked) and it doesn’t wobble a bit. It is as sturdy as the day he built it for me. I am sure your table will serve you well for as many years! :)
