Mission table construction
I'm planning on making this table, so right now I'm trying to figure out whether or not it has traditional stretchers at the top. From the picture it doesn't appear to have them, but that begs the question of what's helping to resist racking at the top of the base.
Anyway, my preference would be to avoid the stretchers since it's a dining table and I'd like the knee room. If you're familiar with this style of construction and know what the top section of the base should look like, I'd appreciate some tips.
