This is from wood given to me by a friendl.
This is the first trestle table I’ve made and I hope to get better with practice.
Thanks for looking.

Very nice, that is a good looking table. Free wood is definately my favorite kind. Nice job.

That is a really nice table. Very clean lines and a nice finish.

When I looked at the first project picture I thought Rocks hanging from the table. The larger picture showed me that I was wrong.

Great job for a first time. Not to mean that it would be a bad job if it was the 10th time. A great job.

Cool looking trestle table. What size is the top? Did you make it to knock down easily?

I make quite a few of my projects out of second hand wood too. I manage to acquire some pine 1”X12”s that are used for crates now & then. They make some pretty good projects.

I had the same impression as Karson, it looked like the tables edge had a rock inlay.

Very nice, it looks like it would very light in weight as well.
