Dining Room Table Part 3

In this video I construct the table apron, cross supports, and the stretcher for my dining room table. The apron rails and cross supports help to keep the table top flat and offers points of attachment with expansion washers and screws. The stretcher connects the arched rails and offers lateral stability.

The apron rails consist of 2 parts; the long apron, and the apron extensions. The aprons are joined to the top supports of the leg assemblies using 2 domino tenons at each joint for a total of 16 domino tenons. The 2 cross supports are attached to the aprons using sliding dovetails. This was done using a handheld router and a guide track, and a router table. The domino mortises pass through the top support and the double tenons of each table leg. Therefore, the domino tenons act as pins, preventing the leg from being pulled out of its respective joint. Finally, the stretcher is joined to the arched rails using through double mortise and tenon joints which were cut using a drill press, chisels, hand planes, and the table saw.
