The church we go to (St. Joachim) has this old (1850’s) chapel they recently had moved onto the new grounds and renovated. I was asked to build a simple wood table for the altar. It was a great opportunity to work with my mentor Bud Raynor. It was his idea to make a picture frame top of milled 2×4’s with a large rabbet to lock a laminated panel flat and in place. We used a trestle design for the legs and used “stretchers” and “knees” to add stiffness and strength.
