Nice, I like the simplicity of the design and wood choice, well done. I’ve been debating building a trestle table myself for awhile now, I may copy that pinned end part.

Thank you all for your lovely comments. an old book from Sweden had a pic of a table that provided inspiration. the boards i bartered homemade bread for from friends who use good forestry management and mill the lumber on their place. I have come up with a design for a matching trestle chair (dowels), which i plan to mount on a mild rocking base with the center of balance altered to allow sitting at the table without using tummy muscles, but allow for leaning back some after the meal. Boards for this found in shed on the ranch, mill ends from the old Pondosa mill. Have a Fabulous evening all. Holly

this site is new too me, hope i’m in the right place. Yes, i need to get at the chairs. But i am really excited about a bed design i have come up with. I have peeled 4, 6’ western larch 6ish” poles. going for a tall 4 poster. a new book out called “The art of the western saddle” has a stunning saddle pictured on the cover.
saddle shown has an undercut swell, my design would be a full cut swell. The swell with the horn will be the headboard, and the cantle the footboard. i have my design patterns for tracing to carve to look like tooling, with some leather in places. in one of what i call old bone yards on the ranch i have found a good deal of old horse drawn equipment hardware. I would like ideas on how best to tastefully use some of this to attach bed pieces together. should i get pics of hardware and post??? thank you H
