Attach the long aprons and create the table frame.

Attach the bottom long support. This is 7.75" from the side of the leg.


Attach table supports

Attach the table top supports. I attached these 11" from each end.


Assemble table top slats

Assemble the table top slats onto the frame. I used 1.5" overhang on both sides of the slats. The first slat was attached flush on the inside edge of the long apron giving a 1" overhang in the front of the table. I used a yard stick which was about 1/4" thick as a spacer between the slats.
