Here is a custom version of my Heritage Dining Table along with a matching bench.
This one is solid walnut, has a flush apron, and flush mount legs.

The finish is an arm-r-seal base with Target Coatings 8000cv on top.

Great looking table. I actually think the flush aprons compliment the exposed tops of the legs nicely.
Question: how is wood movement for the top accommodated? Is their a small gap between the top and the legs?

I’m 6’8” tall and always smashing my legs, knees and shins into hidden table legs and cross members. Being able to see where the legs are located before sitting down and the fact that this table has no leg stretchers is a real winner in my book. Plus it is a very attractive piece.

Hmmmmm…....I see the comments about the flush apron versus inset apron. Would like to see it both ways to determine. If the aprons were inset, I am thinking the legs would look out of place….like they were just added on to the ends. But then again, that may look really cool too. I guess you need to build a second table in order for me to see which one I like better.

it’s already been said “Great looking table. I actually think the flush aprons compliment the exposed tops of the legs nicely.”
I agree – love it

Yes. Unfortunately that is what we have to do. I always explain wood movement to my clients before their purchase.

I have built some flush legs with standard apron set-back. I like the aprons flush
