    Nice and simple idea!
    I was thinking about building a table very much like this but I had some concerns regarding stability... How stable is this table even though the two sets of legs are not linked together? Is there a risk that a table built like this one, but the size of a desk, might be wobbling a bit? Thanks!

    Thank for the input. I also though about that. After finish i have tried it the table are very stable and no wobbling. Is due to the leg base are wider when touching the floor. Anyway there is always an option to add the link wood between the leg. I will add the picture with the link wood between the leg next week. Thanks
