Rustic farmhouse table - 30"

Great project for my first attempt at building a farmhouse table.  I adjusted the base to allow a chair to slide in at both ends.  Braced breadboards on each end with (3) 2x4.  Very strong and sturdy.  Decided not to use the lower base support to see how it held up and has been extremely stable.  My wife liked the open look so that's all I needed to hear.  Excellent plans, had fun and came out better than I anticipated!
