Made the table slightly different but the plans were key in figuring out how to build this. I went with 6 foot overall length and used wooden dowels to join my 2x10 together. Tried a different design on the underside of the table. This project requires lots and lots of sanding...but the end result is fantastic. If you want a rustic (not perfect) looking table this is the one. I made this with only basic power tools hand drill, small table saw, belt sander, orbital sander, brad nail gun and jig saw. The one issue the table is rock solid for movement on the ends but on the sides there is movement which I believe is caused by the legs being comprised of many pieces of wood joined together. If someone sat on the side of the table something might snap in the leg area. The solution would be what one of the reviews recommended, rod thru the centre of each leg.
