scab another apron down the length of both existing aprons (very tight fit), and run one down the center. But next time id follow all previous advice. And for gods sake were are the holes for the beer taps. Are the kegs going to sit on the floor, sorry its getting close to Friday?

This is what I will try first. I will not be able to do the full length because of the 2×2’s I have running width wise for support. I will do one in each corner super tight.

and was trying to make it with the least amount of spend on tools as possible

well that s what you get frustrated now
would be best to have a 5” stretcher M&T into leg


I have a couple more tables that I am going to build in the coming months (dining room and outdoor). I am guessing that I will improve and try to do the M&T in each of these. At some point I will redo the base to this table, but not right now. Nice thing about using ‘select’ boards from Menards is that the total lumber cost might have been $50 – so not a huge deal to redo it in a few years. The tabletop should last years and years if taken care.

And how do you determine what size apron is best to use for the length of the table you are making?
