I made three of these in the 90’s. I tapered the legs with a Porter Cable circular saw using a jig that held the leg blank at the right angle, then my saw ran atop wood rails with a straight edge on one side. Fairly simple really and almost easier than using a table saw. Apron and leg assembly built with mortise and tenons. The top is attached with shop made wood buttons. SYP finished with linseed oil and Danish Oil. Other than the sawing, it was hand work.

Nice tables. You can do a lot with a circular saw when that is all you have to use. Nice job building them…..Jim
