This plan is your guide to making a simple, functional and beautiful table. The design is modeled after the original farm table at which Julia Child and her husband Paul ate most of their meals. It is now on display at the Smithsonian where it so fascinated Mario Rodriguez that he created this plan for reproducing a similar version. Dispensing with typical leg-to-apron joinery, the table has shouldered brindle joints that lock the legs to a pair of long aprons to eliminate racking. Three dovetailed cross rails link the apron, along with the H-stretcher system, to make it rock solid. Follow this detailed plan to complete all the steps for turning the legs on a lathe, cutting the stopped dovetail sockets in the aprons, fitting the stretchers, assembling the undercarriage, and applying the final finish.

This reproduction of a 160-year-old French Regency pedestal table has many interesting details, not to mention a few fun challenges. Each piece is either curved or has a compound angle, and there are tips on using jigs to make construction easier. Curved parts on the triangular base are shaped with a router on a trammel jig. There's no need for a lathe to shape the feet. A steel rod feeds through each section of the table, holding it together.

Based on a piece built at the Shaker community in Hancock, Mass., this table has been sized to meet the demands of today's diners. Bed bolts used in construction ensure that the trestle design can be knocked down easily for moving or storage. The single center stretcher gives plenty vertical legroom and the arched feet give the table a graceful appearance while leaving plenty of space for diners' feet. The posts are turned on a lathe, and then notched with the aid of a shopmade jig.
