As promised, here are free plans to build a Demilune table with straight aprons for those who are not quite ready to take the plunge and try to cut a bazillion kerfs in plywood for rounded aprons.

Step One

Cut the pieces for the legs and the side aprons. Cut a 45° degree bevel on each end of the side aprons. Drill pocket holes at each end (if a Kreg jig can be fit on there) otherwise, secure to the legs using glue and 1-1/4″ brad nails through the outside of the aprons into the legs.
