Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!

You'll need to make three of these. If you have a nailer, that will be the best way to go. Keep outside edges flush and use glue. TIP: Make sure your stretcher board fits in the middle opening.
Next add the top and bottom.
Now add the decorative pieces. You'll cut these with a jigsaw and sand smooth first before attaching.
And then the base board.
Now add the top board.
Adding feet will make your table sit on the six little feet - very handy if you have uneven floors. Then you can just shim the one foot not cooperating.
Now it gets fun! Put the stretcher in place.
And now let's move on to the table top. I highly recommend a Kreg Jig here.
And the decorative aprons. Don't forget the glue here.
Add the finishing touches here. Use glue and screws or nails. Predrill to avoid wood splitting.
Now we can add the base!
