I would like to get a plan for a table with bread board ends. Cross buck legs with a leg strecher.

Hello, Walter.  There are plans for exactly what you are looking for in Construction of American Furniture Treasures, by Lester Margon.  There is a Dover reprint commonly available.  It was this book that got me started making period furniture.  A word, though.  The drawings are good, but a lot of the instructions on construction and finishing are pure 1940's.   Good luck.  PSP
