This is a trestle table i recently finished for my sister. She wanted a shadow box type so she could display some of her collection of seashells and stuff. She recently moved back to spokane from texas after a nasty divorce so i thought i would do something nice for her. She loves it. I made two matching benches to go with it. (also what she wanted) The table is pine and pine plywood. It measures 32 inches by 72 inches which is a perfect fit for her new apartment. The first two pictures is with the glass top (1/2 inch thick) and then three pics of the seashell design that my sister put into it before the glass was on and the last pic is when i first brought it over to her place.

This is such a nice table and a great idea for storing a collection of some sort. My wife has a collection of sea shells and this idea would work nicely for a coffee table as well. I’m going to show this to her. Nice going.

NICE LOOKING TABLE OUTFIT. LOVE THE INSIDE OF THE BOX. THAT SHOULD HOLD A KIDS ATTENTION LONG ENOUGH FOR THEM TO EAT. GREAT CONSTRUCT.

Tempered glass is expensive, this table top is not tempered, at 1/2 inch it doesn’t need to be. But still pricey at 765.00 delivered
