Custom Farm House table with breadboard ends using mortise and tenon and draw-boarded joinery

This table has a larger table top then most I build so I wanted to do things a bit different to ensure strength and integrity of the wood joint.  This top was going to be around 4 feet wide and 8 feet long.  So, I decided to go with mortise and tenon with draw-boarded joinery on the breadboards.  I also wanted to make sure I was able to get in and out of doors so the base stayed within the limits of a standard door.  Two long benches for the sides as well as two mini benches were made for each end to round things off.  Really turned out good, and was fun to make.  This is a picture the customer sent me after adding it to his ranch house.
