A customer has finally asked us to build a custom one of a kind Trestle dining table with Extension leafs on the ends. We have done many drawings and plans for customers that wanted a trestle table and/or leaves but none have ever panned out. This table is our first attempt at both table leaves as well as a Trestle base. The Table is built with genuine reclaimed barn wood taken from the North Georgia area. This design features 4”x 8” main columns and a 2” thick table top with matching leaves and breadboard ends.

Yeah the leaves on the ends took some serious brainstorming and trail and error to figure out how to properly support them without adding legs to the leaves.

Nice work. I just measured a customers dining room Friday for something very similar.
