The basis for this design is a Stickley 552 Gateleg table. However, after touring a local antiques store (packed full of gateleg tables, who knew they were so popular!), the decision was made to redesign the table to remove the 'humped' stretcher, and notch the leg and the bottom stretcher for a flush-mounted joinery.
While doing layout, and failing to find the butcherblock panels in the kitchen department at the local home centre, the design was further refined for ease of construction, using dimensional lumber as an edge on a plywood panel, rather than doing a lot of glue-up.
Switching the whole thing to dimensional lumber and plywood will require cutting a dado groove into a plywood panel, but with small enough leaves, the individual work shouldn't be too hard.
