This solid mahogany trestle table that will easily accommodate ten guests was constructed using two massive boards each measuring eleven feet long and and almost thirty inches wide. The unique base was carved using a combination of hand and power tools. Design details include the arched stretcher and the beaded table edge.

I have some progress photos that I’ll add when I get to the shop on Monday.

A spectacular table. I sure like the leg style,and how the design flows with some softer edges compared to a more traditional trestle table. Very awesome. Oh, do you keep this one or sell it?
