First of all, it was pointed out that I really gave some inaccurate information on the first bread board end post regarding the peg and the holes. I wasn't clear enough in stating that the experimental part was to see how the top would look having a breadboard end of 1 1/4" thickness while the main table top is only 3/4" in thickness. The plan is to laminate a piece to the underside of the top at the edges only to make it appear to be thicker. Here's the final result of the experiment. I like it but will probably use more of a taper and Ebony for the pegs.
The first step was to lay it out. This was a matter of extending the lines and drawing a 45 degree line at the corners.

The way to gauge your progress is to watch what happens at the corners. You should see your angled cut go from the inside to the outer corner. I've tried to illustrate that here with the chalk.

Again, sorry about the confusion on the previous post regarding the bread board design. Once the table project gets under way I'll clarify that again.
