Nearly every woodworking project in one form or another will require you to check some intersection, joint, or board end for squareness, or "square." In some cases, you'll need to confirm that an entire assembly is square. For small projects, you can use a squaring tool, such as a try square, speed square, or framing square. For larger projects, you can check for square by measuring diagonally between opposing corners: The assembly is square when the measurements are equal. You can also use the 3-4-5 method, based on the Pythagorean Theorem: a2 + b2 = c2.

Avoid machines that can be converted from one machine to another. The ShopSmith is a prime example of such a machine. Multi purpose machines are usually good at one or two functions, but other aspects are compromised. But the real problem is that every time you need to switch functions, you need to convert the machine. And the cost of these machines is usually high enough that you could get several single function machines for the same price.

Table aprons are the boards that make up the sides of the table base and connect the legs.  They are also called table skirts.  Dimensions are 3 1/2" wide and 22 1/4" long across the ends and 62" long down the sides.  For a 34x72 inch table and 4x4 legs, these apron lengths inset the legs roughly 2" on all sides.  The wood is 3/4" to 1" thick rough-cut wood from our old barn.  The red color was a little stark so I sparsely brushed a coat of chalk paint on and waxed again with Briwax.

To be honest I'm not entirely sure of all the wood species because it was repurposed wood. The legs were from cedar 4x4 cutoffs and the aprons were from barn wood which I think was poplar. The top is from wood I helped salvage about 40 years ago as a kid and I'm not sure what type it is. It could be fir. I think the most important thing is to use wood that is dry and straight. Kiln dried is good. If I was going to Home Depot I'd buy pine for the legs and aprons and poplar for the top if planning to paint it. Poplar is much harder and therefore more durable than pine, however, a pine top would work too. Pine is cheaper than poplar. Douglas fir is also softer than poplar if you anticipate a lot of wear and tear. Pine and poplar are more difficult to stain evenly, but you could leave it natural and use a polyurethane to protect it.
This rustic farmhouse table comes with an extension leaf making it extremely functional. When required, you can extend the two end pieces to add extension leaves for additional space on the table and when not in use, simply slide it in. It will cost you around $230-$300 based on the materials which you already have. Though it requires some carpentry skills to get the job done, you can also do it with attention to the detailed instructions provided if you are new to woodworking.

While metal machinists’ straightedges are ideal for setting up woodworking machinery, their high-tolerance accuracy and weight are overkill for most woodworking tasks. For centuries, shop-made wooden straightedges handled many layout and testing chores, and the tools are still useful today. Wooden straightedges are lightweight, simple to make in any size and can be easily trued with common workshop tools. While straightedges that resemble the machinists’ versions – essentially a skinny rectangle with parallel edges – are useful, these tend to go out of square quickly as the seasons change. However, by understanding a bit about the way wood works, you can make a wooden straightedge that is both accurate and durable.
To inset the aprons 3/4" from the outer surface of the legs I made a spacer from 2 pieces of plywood.  This little jig made it easy to keep the distances uniform and also secure the apron to the leg while fastening.  Pic 3 illustrates how the jig, apron and leg are clamped together for fastening.  Each apron end is held by three 2 1/2" pocket screws.  The pocket holes were made using a Kreg pocket hole jig.  I assembled the short ends first and then the rest of the table base making sure the kerf (for clips) was along the top edge.  Since this is a long table I also added a cross piece in the middle of the table using pocket screws.
