The new kitchen table will be modular with two end pieces/legs and a wedged stretcher between them. I haven't decided on a slab yet but I expect it will be "blind pegged" like my workbenches so the table can be expanded by changing the stretcher and the slab.
Here is the first rough cut of one of the feet. BTW, the base wood is Alder. I'm still doing the "yes but" about the slab.
