The modern farm table continues to be one of the most built plans that I have designed. I believe the reason for it's success is that it's simple, easy to build, stylish, and it's difficult to find a solid wood table in a modern design. So many of us have built this table. One of our readers, Tami, built the table and modified it to square. I was so inspired by Tami's photo, that I just had to offer the plans to everyone else.
I choose to scale down the aprons and legs to 2x4s instead of 2x6s because the table is so much smaller. This table is a perfect small space table. Try shortening the legs to 18" for a coffee table too.

Tabletop If you have a Kreg Jig™, you can join all your boards together first. Otherwise, lay your 1×6 boards on a flat surface, measure the width and cut 2x2s to match. Glue and screw the 2x2 under supports to the bottom using the shorter screws. Check for square and keep outside edges flush.
