This is a dinning table I made small to fit a specific space and to seat four. It’s a made from six quarter cherry and finished with approx 10 coats of minwax wipe on poly ( I lost track of the exact number ). Overall I’m happy with the execution but next time I would change a few design choices. I would love to build another one only on a bigger scale. Thanks for looking.

Very nice look, clean and simple lines. The latest issue of FWW has a trestle table build in it. Your table would certainly fit right in with the one they built. Is it an optical illusion or is the front edge curved every so slightly?

To answer your question Earl yes there in a 1” bow on the sides of the table. There is where one of the changes I would make come in. Before I cut the bow I put a 22 degree bevel on the lower edges of the top then cut the bow. It’s hard to see it in the pictures. It just isn’t as pronounced as I would like it to be.

This table is gorgeous! I love the trestle table as a design, and hope to build one someday, maybe when my wife and I buy a house to put it in. I like all the curves, and the wedged through tenon on yours. Can you take this one apart? The through tenon reminds me of a knockdown trestle design I’ve seen.

Thanks Jeremy. Yes the wedges come out and it can be taken apart.
