Center Tabletop Boards
Flip tabletop frame over so joists are flush with top of table. Mark center of apron ends and joists, 18 inches from outside of side aprons. Apply glue to table frame. Lay two tabletop boards on top of table and line up with center of table frame. Screw down ends to apron ends with two-inch wood screws. Tip: Measure out screw holes to create a uniform pattern.
Attach Tabletop Board Ends
Apply glue to exposed tabletop frame and lay remaining tabletop boards on frame. Line up ends with center tabletop boards. Screw only ends to end aprons.
Flip table over. Screw joists to tabletop boards with two-inch screws. Use two screws per joist per tabletop board.
