I recently completed this trestle table. The top is a single slab of walnut with one free edge. It measures about 24” x 72”. I was lucky enough to find the slab for cheap at my friend’s shop, Sailor’s Crafts, in Lewisburg, WV (America’s Coolest Small town). The maple for the base came from a tree that a neighbor took down a couple years ago that I slabbed with a chainsaw.
Instead of butterflying the cracks in the top, I drilled into the edge and glued in dowels. The entire piece is finished with varnish.
