I built this table about a year ago now, and I finally got around to posting it. I’ve always like the trestle table design, so here is my interpretation of it. The top is a glue up of several boards and is 1.25 inches thick; by using a thicker top I avoided needing any sort of skirt boards for support. The joints are all wedged mortise and tenon joints. I added a 1/16” string inline into the top of table to add a little excitement. I didn’t do any thing fancy with the cross grain inlay, though I’ve heard other people have problems by crossing the grain. It’s been a year and I haven’t seen any indication of stretching or compression in the inlay.
Hope you like it.
