Wife found a post where someone did a riff on farmhouse X table where instead of supports at the floor and top of the base, there was one support in the middle of the X. The riff made the table taller than the original (which I didn’t realize till we had the x bench put up against the ‘riff’ table - about 3 inches too low which I’ll fix this weekend. It only works ok for my 6’7” brother law lol.
Other alterations i made - turned the X support into through tenons (my first - future ones will be cooler) and decorative cross 2x2 under the table top similar to the way they are on the bench.
Turns out, looks pretty cool with taller bar chairs!
