Well I took the table apart and I went and picked up some 1×6 pieces to use as the apron. Figured would be an easy change before we paint the base.

So now I will have a 1×6 apron all the way around. I will also scab a second 10” piece of 1×6 onto each corner to provide additional bracing. I am still using pocket screws to connect the aprons as that is what I have available to be at this time. Hopefully changing out the apron will stop the racking that was occurring so that I do not need to add a bottom stretcher on as that will take away from the look of the table.

Will post an update and pictures when all done tomorrow.
