When Ashley from the blog Cherished Bliss wrote and asked me to help her with the plans for an outdoor table with X legs and a herringbone top I was totally honored but I knew I had my work cut out for me. I went to work on the plans and after talking with Ashely, we decided to go with a 4×4 X leg with lap joint. This might look difficult but if you look at step 1 you’ll see that cutting the joint is actually quite simple. And then there is that herringbone top. When she said thats what she wanted I new it would require a lot of miter cuts but when you look at the finished product you can see it was all worth it! I hope you enjoy the plans and make sure to check out Ashley’s build post for photos of the build.
