Table for 12!

My wife wanted a table to seat 12 and she liked the looks of the 4x4 Truss Beam Table from Ana White.

So we modified the plans, our table is 54 inches wide (not 37) and 98 inches long (instead of 87). The legs are 4x6 not 4x4. The lower center beam is 4x6. The plans call for 2x4 aprons ending at the legs, we used 4x4 aprons and extended them beyond the legs to within 3 inches of the end of the table. Finally, we laid the tabletop across the table with a combination of 2x8, 2x10, and 2x12 boards.
We built this all with cedar. The cost is a little over $1,100 for materials.
