This is the third and last piece of the Dining Room Set. It is a trestle table with removeable legs an dheld together with tusk tenon joinery. The top is heavily figured 6/4 Birdseye Maple with a clear Maple edging that is tapered to give alighter appearance. There are also two 12” wide leaves that are install on a sliding wooden mechanism. I wanted the top to be made of some really special figured Maple. We took a ride to Lancaster PA to a place called Sandy Ponds Hardwoods to hand pick each piece that would be used for the top.

One of the two leaves. The Maple edging mates up with the table top edging when the leaf is installed.
