I had admired the x frame table from Anthropologie but knew it was out of my price range. When I saw these plans from Ana White, I knew I had to try to make my own table. This was my first wood working project and turned out that it wasn't too difficult. I constructed the table in a weekend. The first one I built was 5' long (used 4 2x10 boards) so that it would fit in our townhouse kitchen. When we moved to a larger home, I was able to create a new larger top and extended the base. The new table is 8' (used 4 2x12 boards). I absolutely love the table. Thank you Ana!
