I built this 72”x36” trestle table for someone in Washington. The top has epoxy coating and all other parts have danish oil and water based poly. It bolts and screws together so I can ship it on a pallet. I kinda like the modern clean lines of this design, even though I’m a live edge type of guy. Pretty easy to build, just 4 pieces. Thanks for looking.

The top screws onto the legs with some flat L-shaped brackets recessed into the top of the legs. It’s surprisingly sturdier than I expected. I used threaded metal inserts in the ends of the center beam to bolt the legs to the beam.

love that blue mountain pine…this is a nice design, is th top held on with tenons or did you use the figure 8, or you could use large dowels…but it sure looks good…
