I had these two Alaska Yellow cedar slabs taking up room in my shop. So, I dreamt up this trestle table design for them. I cut a slight convex on the sides and ends which gives the top a slight barrel shape. The top is 2” thick 84” long, 37” wide. I filled the dead knot in the center of the top with epoxy. The feet and spreaders are doug fir, the legs, shelf and trestles are red alder and the pins are black walnut. I finished the whole thing in linseed oil.
PS: I also have two narrower slabs for matching benches. I’ll be working on them next.
