This is a knockdown trestle table made for a client about 4 years ago. They wanted it unfinished so they could stain and finish it themselves and stay within budget. It is made to their exact specifications!

The table is 4 feet wide by 10 feet long. It’s made from white pine to help keep within a strict budget. All of the joinery is mortise and tenon. The trestle on the table is held in place with tusk tenons placed on their sides, which is a different placement based on traditional placement!
