we delivered a table friday to the stowe ski area, about 3 hours north of here … i hadn’t been there for a while, and i was surprised to see the hundreds of new condos and the 50 or so private custom homes right at the base lodge … i mean, right there. anyway, this table went to one of those custom homes and it was almost finished when we showed up … the clients will be spending the holidays there. anyway, this was an interesting trestle table with 9” flip up leaves on each end … we had to engineer some supports and slides and sam had to make some custom twisted metal braces…. then we distressed it … in the end, we all thought it was a warm friendly touch in the ‘great’ room … at 10’ long, it almost looked a little lost in there the room was so great …
more process descriptions and photos on my dorset custom funriture blog ... also in that post, you can see the 'headscratcher' 'x' table from last sunday finished, and in its final home …

Beautiful work! I love it. And thanks for the detail photos of the project. It looks beautiful in it’s new home. (Also a beautiful project.) I love timber frame homes. My ultimate woodworking project is to build one to live in.

This is a first for me Dan. love your work but this time it just does not work for me, those metal rods are intrusive IMO. I would have much rather see two tennoned supports.
