I just sent these out, and immediately had to apologize for getting the height wrong. Note to self: measure twice, then check the original order and make sure it’s what the customer actually asked for. She will ship the legs back for shortening as required, that should be pretty easy just wish I had discovered it before shipping; one hour later and it’s too late. The tops are elm with the legs and stretchers from Chestnut and the pins being walnut. I had to build them to ship through the US postal system and be put together easily, so I went with a trestle design. The Legs are mortised to the top with a dovetailed edge on the outside. Once they are inserted and stood upright, the pins lock it together with no movement. The finish is rattle can lacquer. The two blocks on the underside of the top lock the legs straight when pinned.
-- You never cut a piece to short, you are just prepping that piece for a future project
