I Just installed this Stickley inspired trestle table today. This is my first dining table and I am very happy with the results. The new owner of the table is happy with it too. It is built with Quarter Sawn White Oak, stained then finished with a conversion varnish. I used equalizing table slides to allow for the two self storing 18” leafs. By far the scariest part of this project was routing that big round over on the bottom of the table. I was really white knuckling it.
Thank you for looking!

Stickley is not my style but you did a beautiful job on it and it’s definitely a show piece.

Beautiful project. Did you use 5/4 QSWO for the legs and 8/4 QSWO for the top? Just guessing Thank you in advance for any consideration you can give this matter.

Thank you both. I will give finished dimensions of the components. the top is 1 1/4” the, legs are 1 3/4”, the the top rail and the bottom rail (rail with the arch) of the trestle are 1 1/2”, the 3 styles with the squares and rectangles mortised out are 1 1/4” and the stretcher is 1 1/4”. These components were all milled from either 8/4 or 6/4 QSWO . oh yeah, the apron finished out at 3/4”. Hope that helps.
