    Altar V 3.0 aproved version

    Here is another version that is 72x36x36
    I wonder if it needs an apron ?
    I did attach the skp file but if anyone wants it let me know.

    Just my opinion of course, but I liked the original style much better. This one to me just looks Too Busy, ie; too much wood and it kills the style.

    I Have to agree with Norman. I liked the first one, especially after the alignment of the legs and top support and the addition of the through mortise on the stretcher.

    Have to agree- I think the first one was nicer, although I think this one is sturdier/less prone to racking.

    Another vote for V1.0 The legs / feet on v2.0 are way to bulky in my opinion.

    He told me that he wanted to see something with the bottom closed and with the bottom open. He said that he personaly like to have the bottom closed in. That reason for this design.

    This version takes elements the legs from ver 1 and combines it with the other eleminates from V 2.0
    I'll call it V2.11.
    PS I hope I'm not boreing you all.

    Don, I like how the negative space on the side panels evokes a cross. (well two, actually)

    I wonder if the middle panel under the table would also look better with some sort of cutout in it. Either separate it into two panels with a cross, like on the side panels. Or just cut out some other symbol -- dove, etc.
    That would also lighten it up a touch also.

    ...art
    There's usually more than one way to do it...
