The heart of this rustic table is its hayrake-shaped stretcher inspired by English Arts and Crafts designer Sidney Barnsley. The quartersawn white oak project includes an array of mortise-and-tenon joints including through-tenons and wedged tenons. The curved and angled joinery of the hayrake looks complex, but the construction is broken down into a series of straightforward steps. Drawboring the hayrake joints also simplifies building, since you can glue them up without clamps. The edges of the project are eased with machine-cut chamfers that are fine-tuned by hand.

Extra Ever wish you could get a digital project plan that allowed you to customize the design to suit your own needs? Here they are! Digital project plans in SketchUP, the free Google drawing program.
Are there any other advantages? For starters, you'll get your plan immediately. Your digital plan will consist of drawings in PDF format, with detailed, measured drawings and a cutlist. Full-size drawings are included for critical parts and templates. All of the drawings can be printed on a typical consumer-grade computer printer -- the larger template drawings can be taped together or you can take the file on a disc or flash drive (or email) to a local copy center for printing on Arch D size paper. The projects also have written instructions to guide you through construction process. If you want to modify one of the projects, the SketchUp version of the plan will be perfect for you.
Available free from Google by clicking here, SketchUp allows you to manipulate the drawing and make as many changes as you like to fit your needs -- or make more substantial changes to the design. You're limited only by your creativity.If you need help using SketchUp, visit our blog Design.Click.Build. hosted by Tim Killen and David Richards.
